Vampire Batman pt. 2

It seems only natural to mix the supernatural aspect of bats with the Batman character. Indeed he preys upon the superstitious and cowardly fear most criminals harbor deep in their psyche. And when you throw in the bat association with the dark bloodsucking vampires of the night, well....

Kelley Jones may have detractors over his version of Batman. But one thing is always certain: his Batman is creepy as hell! Nowhere is this more evident than in the spectacular Elseworld's trilogy of bat-horrors Red Rain, Bloodstorm and Crimson Mist.

The second in the trilogy, Bloodstorm, saw Batman fall further under the vampiric spell and succumb completely to the undead curse. It also introduced a creepy/sexy were-cat version of Catwoman.

Unfortunately the poor soul of the Batman couldn't rest totally and he was revived from the dead (as usually happens in horror movies) for the third installment Crimson Mist.

Frankly, if anyone remotely pays attention to this blog (anyone of real creative clout within the DC-universe), I would push...shove, perhaps...the animators at Warner Bros. to put a DVD/Blu-Ray version of this Batman mythos under the gun for a release in October of next year.

And if anyone at Eidos is paying attention, a full-on first-person fighter for the PS3, XBox 360 and other consoles shouldn't be out of the question either! Heck, I'd settle for an unlockable player costume.
