LIID Tryout Week 4: Batman vs. Mysterio by johntrumbull LIID Tryout Week 4: Batman vs. Mysterio by johntrumbull
My Week 4 tryout piece for The Line It Is Drawn over at Comics Should Be Good!

The theme this week was: "Comic book characters facing off against villains they've never fought before." The Twitter suggestion for the theme that caught my fancy was Batman vs. Mysterio. I really liked this idea because Mysterio could VERY easily be a real Batman villain (Heck, 70s Bat-villain the Spook basically IS Mysterio). He even has the same green & purple color scheme as the Joker, the Riddler and Catwoman!

The fun part of this one was attempting to draw a Steve Ditko-esque Mysterio and a Marshall Rogers-esque Batman. I even managed to sneak in one of those Ditkoesque water towers that are all over the early issues of Spider-Man. I'm particularly happy with how the colors on this one turned out. Thanks to my buddy Loston Wallace :iconlostonwallace: for some good advice on the colors!

Aw man, that looks nuts! I would love to see that fight actually. Ive always liked Mysterio as a villain who was so unique and interesting. I personality think the character was underused in the Spiderman comics, but thats just me.

Yeah, Mysterio gets a bum rap, IMO. He's got a great, unique look and a cool gimmick.

Totally! It sucked when he "died" in the Daredevil comic from poisonous gas and now they want to put some teleporting mutant in the role? That ruins the mystery of how he always gets away imo.
