The Line It Is Drawn #91: Jonah Hex with the Gotham by Gaslight Batman! In honor of comic book artist & Jonah Hex co-creator Tony DeZuniga, it's Jonah Hex theme week at the Line It Is Drawn!
I chose the suggestion to team up Hex with the Gotham by Gaslight Batman. Once I had that, I knew I had to have Hex meet his modern day DCU counterpart, Two-Face!
I decided to use the old, haggard-looking Jonah Hex as he appeared in the Batman: The Animated series episode "Showdown", which took place in 1883, just 6 years before Gotham by Gaslight. And for Two-Face, I decide to emulate the Jack Burnley version, since for my money, that's the best the character has ever looked. Check out Burnley's terrific Two-Face here: [link]
GREAT fun doing this one. This was one of those times when the drawing went very easily and everything came out the way I wanted it to. Very nice change of pace after all the frustration the Galactus/Planetary illustration gave me last week. Can YOU spot the obscure Jonah Hex reference I snuck into the background?
