    Scott Hampton - Batman: Night Cries, page 65 Original Art (DC, 1993). "Some things frighten even the Batman. Some crimes even he can't solve...." So went the tag-line for the Batman: Night Cries hardcover graphic novel. No punches were pulled in this story dealing with one of the most difficult crimes any law enforcement official, or vigilante, ever has to face: child abuse. Scott Hampton's mixed-media painting captures perfectly the brooding and gothic nature of the Dark Knight Detective, who serves out tough justice to any and all evil-doers. The broken urban landscape serves as a powerful metaphor for the shattered lives of the young victims. The image area measures 9.5" x 13", and the art is in Excellent condition. Scott Hampton has signed and dated the piece at the lower left. This painting from Night Cries is a tour de force that will be appreciated by all fans of the Bat.
