Inspired by the dapper men in the 1920s Australian mugshots, artist Jason Mark re-created these scenes with famous Batman villains. Between this and the Rockabilly Batman series, a very solid case is being made for a vintage Batman cartoon or (well done) webseries. Frankly, we'll take both.

Edit: Earlier we said these were 1920s mugshots but the dates on the images imply that they were "taken" in the 1940s. Sorry about the mix up.
