...Ty Templeton, fan-favorite artist of, among others, The Batman Adventures (the first of multiple comic book series based on Batman: The Animated Series and its subsequent incarnations).
Besides loving Ty's style in general, I love that he was tapped into the tragic legacy of Bill Finger before we approached him. He is clearly bringing that passion and knowledge to his work on the book.
Ty's first sketches arrived in an envelope cleverly customized, courtesy of Alyssa Pusey, my wonderful Charlesbridge editor:
Much more Ty the Guy to come!
