LIID Week 93: Batman and the Rocketeer! by johntrumbull LIID Week 93: Batman and the Rocketeer! by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #93: Cross-Company Team-Ups! The suggestion I picked was Batman & The Rocketeer. I combined this with a suggestion from back in January of the Rocketeer fighting the Red Skull. I always thought it was a neat idea but I never got to draw it until now.

I'm pretty happy with how the drawing on this one turned out. My only regret is that I didn't have enough time to color it. Keep an eye on here my Deviant Art page for the color version!

(BTW, if you ever want to be put in your place, artistically-speaking, looking at Dave Stevens and Jack Kirby art for reference will certainly do the trick. :) MAN, those guys were good!)

You can check out all the other great pieces from this week (Our Best Yet, IMO) here: [link]

Special thanks to Todd Klein for the Golden Age Batman logo from Batman #11. If you're on Facebook, be sure to check out his Logo of the Day feature, with tons of great comic book logos: [link] Or check out his website here: [link]

6/8/12 UPDATE: This piece is apparently starting to make the rounds on Tumblr, too: [link]

Thank you, Happy Sorceress, whomever you are! :)

This piece just seems to strike a chord with people. You know, Loston Wallace :iconlostonwallace: and I were just talking the other day about submitting some Rocketeer stuff to IDW, so who knows? Maybe we can make it happen someday! :)

Thanks very much, Axel, but for my money Daniel's Incredible Hulk/Wonder Woman TV Guide cover was the piece of the week. MAN, I love that thing!

This is really cool...there is a serious lack of Rocketeer stuff out there, and he's such a cool character. And the classic Batman and Robin look great! I would love to see this in color (probably like a lot of other people...)!

Me too! I really want to color it ASAP, but I may not be able to get to it this week since I'm gearing up for my trip to Los Angeles. I WILL be colored, though, I promise!

Cool! I'll be watching, probably in the new Batman stuff, as I scan once a week or so for new stuff in all of my subjects of interest. Looking forward to it!
