While reading some excellent issues of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo’s Batman, I thought about how challenging it must be for a writer to create an engaging, unique story with a character that has been around for over 75 years. As a writing challenge, I decided to draft a short pitch for a Batman story, to see what I could create.
I challenged my colleagues at Nothing But Comics to do the same.
Here are the rules for the challenge: Create a pitch for the Batman story you want to write. The pitch can’t be more than 100 words in length (although you can use fewer words, if you want). Your pitch should include a short tagline that captures what your pitch is about, but this tagline is not counted as part of your 100-word limit.
