LIID Week 88: COPS: Gotham by johntrumbull LIID Week 88: COPS: Gotham by johntrumbull
The theme for this week's The Line It Is Drawn was Comic Book Characters on Reality Shows. I'm not a big reality show person, so I chose Cops: Gotham almost at random. I didn't have much of an idea until I sat down to start working on the piece. When I started sketching, it occurred to me that it might be funny to show the cop's reactions to Batman catching all the big crooks in town. After a while, I figured they might start to get a little blasť about it.

The layout is based on a Jim Aparo panel from 1980's The Untold Legend of the Batman, a series that recapped Batman's origins and background as they existed at that time. I read it at the very impressionable age of about 8 or so, so some of my very favorite Batman images are from that series. There's something I love about the idea of early outlaw vigilante Batman just dumping a tied & bound Joker at the front steps of police headquarters without even stopping the Batmobile (And how cool is that 1940s roadster Batmobile, BTW?). It's so pulpy & fun.

Anyway, I hope you like it! Check out all the other great entries by the LIID artists here: [link]
