V For... Batman?


J. H. Williams III , my favourite comic artist working at the moment, has posted some samples of his work on the next issue of Batman, number 667 (666 will be coming out after 666 due to DC's incredibly sensible and not at all screwed up system of getting books out on time).

Now, I know it's meant to be Musketeer, and it's only one panel, but I can't help thinking this resemblance is deliberate, and I wonder what that means for the story...

For what little it's worth, it looks like they've pushed back #667, the end result being that #666 will now be released on July 25th (according to DCcomics.com) and #667 will be out on August 8th. At least, that's what's being advertised.

Maybe a shot of one of the "Batmen of many nations" or whatever they were called--he looks a little like the French (?) Musketeer (?) one. Of course, that does at least sound thematically similar to the final scenes of V (Batman inspires everyone to become... batmen).
