I have a new piece up on Cornered today, reminiscing about that one time thor got turned into a frog:



This really happened, and by "really" I mean "was actually in a comic book."

Batman Incorporated: Batman of the Congo

Today's (silliest) Batman Incorporated design is for a Batman far from home, exploring the mysteries and adventures of the African jungle. Here's the Batman of the Congo and his faithful monkey, Robin:



Yep. More to come!

Batman Incorporated: Glasgow's Blackwatch and Robin

Time for another Batman Incorporated design. This time, we head to Scotland for Glasgow's Blackwatch and Robin.



I know, I know! I told Robin that hairdo is a terrible idea if she wants to keep her secret identity secret, but she just wouldn't listen. Hey, at least I got her to not wear the Gordon clan plaid. I wonder if these two ever team up with Scottish Superman?

More to come!

Batman Incorporated: Batman Detroit

Batman Incorporated is a current series from DC Comics in which Bruce Wayne is traveling the globe and setting up Batman like a franchise, recruiting and sponsoring local heroes to serve as the Batman in their area.

Some of the purists complain, but with a series as old as Batman, you have to shake things up once in a while. I decided my home state needed a better Batman than this guy who actually tried it recently, and whipped up a design for Batman Detroit. Here he is:



Yes, the script Batman on his chest is a little silly. I like it a little silly. Orange elements added because Detroit's Batman is probably also a Tiger's fan, and since there was already blue and gray in the costume, he figured it would work to add the orange too.

More to come!
