Well, I think they'd look a little bit like this:
Then there was the third issue of J.H. Williams III and Greg Rucka's run on Detective Comics, which showed how easy it is to mix baroque, monstrous horror...
...with scenes of dancefloor romance that suggest a particularly goth-friendly Disney movie:
So it's not like I'm actually desperate for DC to start publishing comedy-romance-horror stories about young people trying to make a mark on that particular fictional city, because honestly, those stories would probably be better without the constant threat of wonky Bat-cameos. But still, the pleasure of finding such ideas suggested (however obliquely or implicitly) in a Batman comic is one of the reasons I still bother to read comics. Quitely and Williams aren't quite doing that in their respective works, but I still love the way they amp up the theatrical madness implicit in the best Batman stories.
Hmmm... you know, looking back over this post it occurs to me that Sean Witzke really is a lot better at this sort of thing than I am. If I had the skills I'd make him the Liquid Swords/There Will Be Blood mashup album he imagines here, because (A) the battered hubris of Daniel Plainview's "I have a competition in me" speech makes perfect sense in the 'Cold World' that Liquid Swords documents, and (B) Sean's There Will Be Blood: Babycart to Hades post demonstrates just how fitting the substitution of Daniel Plainview for Ogami Ittō actually is.
