Dark Hall Mansion has had this project in development with Yuko for quite some time so it’s most gratifying to finally be able to share her unique vision with fans. From the varied Batman films DHM offered it was “Batman Returns” that most appealed to Yuko as illustrator along with colleague, Claudia de Almeida, on as designer. Yuko’s two striking individual prints offer a standard edition piece reflecting not only Gotham’s protagonists but its topsy-turvy, almost surreal world, along with Yuko’s striking variant edition which finds her favorite character from the film, “Catwoman,” surrounded by feline companions and a reference or two to characters fans will instantly recognize. Yuko’s meticulously detailed and highly stylized illustrations well compliment Claudia’s layout and logo design in creating two prints those same fans won’t soon forget. In addition to DHM’s “Batman Returns” standard and variant edition prints are two select foil editions where the foil substrate reveals itself within various areas of each print creating a select, dynamic, and reflective edition.
