The Sketch Covers

Featuring an extraordinary selection of original Batman drawings assembled from the collection of award-winning Designer/Writer Chip Kidd.

In 2013, DC Comics released a brand-new six-issue revival of the legendary Batman: Black and White series. Based on the hugely-popular 1996 publication, each issue of Batman: Black and White features several short-stories written and drawn by top comic writers and artists. In the first Issue, released on September 4th of 2013, Chip Kidd’s short-story titled “Don’t Know Where, Don’t Know When” (co- written by Michael Cho) was featured, and the issue also included a blank variant cover. This blank cover overlap allowed fans to seek out original sketches by their favorite artists, and became a popular collectable.

Since the release of this Issue, Chip Kidd has amassed a diverse collection of covers. For the first time ever, the Society, in support of The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, is proud to display this collection in our MoCCA Gallery.
