Batman and Something


Sometimes, me and my nephew draw together. Here's one we did recently - I drew Batman and Robin, which Logan (age 4) improved with much-needed facial hair and joined up ears (apparently, I'm told, so that Batman could have an injection). He also drew the fearsome-looking thing on the left, which he assures me 'Looks like a baddie but is actually a goodie'. He didn't tell me if it had a name.

Phonogram

If you don't buy Gillen & McKelvie's PHONOGRAM (Image Comics, 1st issue due 2nd Aug), Gillen will PUNCH this DOG.
Well, he probably already punched it to be honest. But you should still buy the comic. Tomorrow, it might be YOUR dog he goes for.
