“Batman: Detective Comics 31” is an Alex Ross illustration that pays tribute to the legendary creator of Batman. Reinterpreted by Ross in his photorealistic style is the original cover for Detective Comics #31. The comic entitled “Batman Verses The Vampire Part 1” marked the first appearance of Bruce Wayne’s girlfriend Julie Madison, the Mad Monk, the Batplane and the Batarang.
The story follows Batman who discovers that his fiancée Julie Madison, while under a hypnotic spell, attempts to murder a man. Bruce Wayne, in an attempt to help, takes Julie to see a therapist who recommends she take an extended vacation to France and Hungary. Accompanying her on the voyage in order to keep an eye on her, Bruce notices Julie falling under another hypnotic trance. The man responsible for Julie's state is a masked figure known as the Monk. It is up to Batman to thwart the evil plans of the Mad Monk and rescue his fiancée from the perils of danger.
Each print is signed by Alex Ross.

Born in Portland, Oregon, and raised in Lubbock, Texas, Alex made his artistic debut at three when, according to his mother, he grabbed a piece of paper and drew the contents of a television commercial he'd seen moments before. By age 13 he was scripting and drawing original comic books. Ten years later? He was hired by Marvel Comics to illustrate Marvel's central characters in the comic book event, Marvels (1994). Having established himself creatively and financially with superhero projects, Ross turned to the real world with Uncle Sam, a 96-page story that took a hard look at the dark side of American history. Like Marvels, the individual issues of Uncle Sam were collected into a single volume - first in hardcover, then in paperback - and remain in print today. Ross would eventually go on to win the Comic Buyer's Guide Award for Favorite Painter. He won so many times that the award was officially retired.
