What's on Batman's Mind?

CBR had the DC December solicits up Monday afternoon, and I noticed Greg Capullo's cover for Batman #15. Noticed, maybe not liked. I get what he's going for, but I think it doesn't quite get there: Batman's got the Joker on the brain, yeah, yeah. But the Joker's cramped pose is uncharacteristic and weird. You're trying to show that Batman's steel trap of a mind is obsessing over how to stop the Joker's latest scheme; not the Joker taking a squat in Batman's head...

On the other hand, I think DC knows full well what they're doing with this cover, because I'll be surprised if I'm the first to do this; it's Instant Meme!
Are you tired, baby? 'Cause you been running through my mind all day! (Catwoman image from here!) Ugh, I'm about as smooth as a velcro carpet, sorry.

Where's that damn Alfred with my dinner?

Here's a template, try your own! It was really hard to keep them clean, though...

True, keeping it clean for the kids, especially for me, is pretty hard. Thanks or putting that template up, as I now have something new to play with:)

And yes, The Joker does look like's he struggling to take/leave a dump:)
