BANE’S COLORING CORNER!

    BANE’S COLORING CORNER!
    January 25, 2017



    In the back pages of Doom Patrol issue 4.

    The dream is real! Brandon Bird is one of my favorite fine artists. He does everything from phenomenally blunt paintings of Sears stores, to Eric Roberts lunch boxes. He came to me with the idea of doing something with Bane, and I believe originally these were to be stories about Bane doing mundane things, as Bane means many different things to us. He saw Bane as this untapped resource, and I agreed, and we tried to figure out how to present these more abstract ideas about Bane. Brandon had done a coloring book for The Aquabats, and that got us thinking, and Bane’s Coloring Corner was born. And the visionary co-publishers of DC comics (Dan DiDio and Jim Lee) let us go for it! And here you have it.

    I want to point out that these coloring pages are not printed on coloring page material. There was no way to do that with the kind of paper we normally use for Doom Patrol. But we figured the least we could do is provide you with images you could scan, or take pictures of, print out, and get to work on. And to be honest, we didn’t expect anyone to color inside their pristine copies of Doom Patrol 4 anyway. Could this lead to a collection in a real-life coloring book? You’ll have to stay tuned and see, and you the people will have to let us know that you want a Bane Coloring Book in your life. I know I do. Oh, and you’ll find all different kinds of Banes in the coloring corner, not just Bane from the Nolan films— just a lot of different Banes coming. Bane Bane Bane.

    Use the hashtag #BanesColoringCorner and let’s see what you can do with some markers, crayons, colored pencils, fingerprint, or anything you like. Maybe we’ll even figure out a small giveaway for some of our favorite versions. Stay tuned. Thanks to Brandon for the amazing work. You can find him on the web here: www.brandonbird.com, and pick yourself up a Sears Fanclub kit while you’re at it.
