Dean T. Fraser has once again merged the world of Batman with another pop culture phenomenon in his latest series of illustrations entitled Star Wars: Empire Of The Bat.

Star Wars: Empire Of The Bat bridges the world of sci-fi and the Dark Knight together. All the iconic characters have been given a new makeover that kind of makes anyone wonder what it'd be like if a cartoon like this really exists. Batman now dons the Darth Vader suit, the homicidal Joker is now the Emperor and R2-D2 is now Robin. Fans of the Dark Knight will recognize that the style of illustration is quite similar to the vigilante's '90s animated series that has received much critical claim.

It'll be interesting to see where Fraser takes Batman next.
