Chip Kidd remixes Batman’s first adventure with modern day sensibilities.
It’s officially Batman Day, Happy 75th old fella, and of all the stories online this episode of DC All Access captured my imagination as Chip Kidd takes Batman’s first story and remixes it ‘to make sense’.
What happens when Golden Age comic art meets modern design and sensibility? Chip Kidd’s reimagined Detective Comics #27! In this exclusive DC All Access Batman Day clip, Kidd discusses Batman’s first adventure, “The Case of the Chemical Syndicate,” and how he teamed up with writer Brad Meltzer to remix it into something that redefines the term “new classic.”
