LIID 105: WATCHMEN's Kid Sidekicks! by johntrumbull LIID 105: WATCHMEN's Kid Sidekicks! by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #105 for 9/6/12: Superheroes get new teen sidekicks! I chose the suggestion "Ozymandiasí new sidekick, Gordy the Knot-Boy" by Mike Shirley just because I love the name "Gordy the Knot-Boy." This cover is a parody of the famous "Speedy is a JUNKIE" cover to Green Lantern/Green Arrow #85 by Neal Adams: [link]

You can check out all the other great kid sidekick pieces that the Line It Is Drawn crew did here: [link]

Head on over and write some comments!

Something I've struggled so hard to do...make a realistic Golden Age comic cover. Looks like you did a great job here.

Halftones...thanks! I tried one of those a few weeks ago, and didn't have much luck with it; I know I'll have to re-do Leela gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/… . Thanks again.

Nice but I think the C+ should be B+ to indicate "above average" intelligence.

I can't take credit for the clever name. That was all Line It Is Drawn fan Mike Shirley. :)

The kid's name is Speedy. With a name like that drug abuse was the only path he had.

Well, if all you ever do is cut the knots, you'll never learn, will you, Gordy?

(yes, I know that Alexander cut it... but I figure Gordy is going to Catholic school, where guilt was not only borrowed from the Jews, but made into an institution...

Just like the Messiah.)
