1401. The Second Robin

I mentioned yesterday that my friend Joe G. was vital in giving me suggestions for DCember. This is one he didn’t suggest, but he definitely inspired. He recently had an article published, an oral history of the life and death of Jason Todd – the 2nd Robin. It’s a pretty great article that everyone should read on comicsbeat.com. After I read it, I decided to draw Jason in his makeshift Robin outfit before he inherited the classic from his predecessor. I actually think it’s a pretty sharp design and not terribly different from Tim Drake’s Robin costume that would come a decade later.

One of the very first comics I owned (and still own – I think) is from Jason’s early days hanging out with Batman, before he became Robin. I had no real reason to add that.

I like Robin, guys.

1400. The First Batman

It’s theme month time! Winter and the holiday season brings with it DCember. I already draw an unhealthily disproportionate amount of DC Comics characters – particularly Batman-related, so I try to force myself to draw some more oddball choices. To help with that, I rely on my friend and DC Comics expert Joe Grunenwald. Usually for theme months, I make a list. I do not have one for this round. I’m ahead, but it’s adult swim out here, no lifeguards. Feel pity on Joe G. and his future of “DC Me!” texts on Christmas morning.

Up first is The First Batman! If you’re a huge Batman nerd, you know that Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s father, dressed up in this getup for a costume party. The party was crashed by robbers, and Thomas fought them off, planting the seeds for young Bruce to murder his own parents and dress up as a broken adult and beat up crime. I took some liberties with the design of the outfit.
