No big surprises here, but I held onto scans of the layouts, pencils and inks so I thought this would be worth posting to show the way things developed from rough idea to final colors. This was published in DC's "52", number 13, 2006. It's the first of two pages.
I've liked this character since I first saw him in Detective Comics in the 60's. I don't remember which issue it was but the story had some beautiful Carmine Infantino art. For a change, he was doing his own inks and even though they were a little "scratchy" compared to Anderson and Giella, they looked great to my young eyes. Lots of energy and imaginative design work.
Those early stories were always fun, with bits of good natured humor.
