Cermak’s Alternative Versions of the Dynamic Duo

I liked this depiction of the Dynamic Duo by Craig C. Cermak II. He portrayed Batman and Robin realistically, as in the mainstream comic books, but in the simple costumes designed for the Batman: The New Adventures television cartoon.

Last year Cermak and Ramon Villalobos shared a version of Batman and Robin as they appeared in DC Comics’ #1,000,000 issues from November 1998, posed as on Batman and Robin, #1, from 2009.

Such portrayals remind us that there have been many successful versions of the characters over the years. As long as they share the core qualities, fans can overlook differences in extraneous details. (Of course, there can be disagreement about what’s core and what’s extraneous.)
