Technically, this is the fourth in the "series" of commissions all for the
same customer. Probably get the third one done by end of day.

I'm getting a Sal Buscema vibe from this one.

Wow!!! What a terrific use of the space. I love the way the swinging bag in the back gives a sense that he's moving without any speed lines needed. Very well done.

This is great!  We need to see more villains get the pose treatment!

I'm very interested to see where this "series" is going.  Two Batman pieces and a Green Goblin?  Hopefully the commissioner will reveal himself and the story behind the pieces.

I don't think there's a "theme", Joe. Just five pieces, two of which happen to
be Batman.

First time I can remember seeing scales on the face mask. I like it.

Not untapped for long I'd wager Stuart. We've already seen Darkseid, Doom and Joker. I'm sure we will see more villains in pose.

This is very good. I like the texture, and use of space. You really filled the page with this one.
