Best Batmobile ever!

As I thought long before it turned up, customized, on the Adam West TV show!

Sad thing is, the modifications George Barris made did nothing to disguise the fact that the batcar in the series was the Lincoln Futura. All it did was destroy the only existing Futura. I'd have thought Barris would have a greater sense of history than that.

But, then, I suppose, when you build a career out of turning "old" cars into hotrods, history kind of falls by the wayside. Sort of like the old line, "When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

Thanks! Considering that she came along during my "hiatus", and so did not create for me the same emotional connection I have for Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and the rest of the Silver Age DC characters, I guess it's somewhat surprising that I do, indeed, have a great fondness for Barbara Gordon's alter ego.

First Batgirl story I saw, upon my return to reading comics, was actually in the form of the oversized "thumbnails" Gil Kane used to do. There he would basically draw all the characters naked, and merely indicate costume and drapery lines. So that MIGHT have had something to do with why Batgirl won me over as she did!

(I exercised a HUGE amount of self-restraint today, tempted as I was to name this thread "Dynamic Duo -- and Batman.")

Just perfect! Heroes having fun and beautifully rendered. I can't help but wonder if this is a theme for someone in the making.

HA! Just spotted the missed black! Hasn't been one of those for a while, and this time it's really small -- the tip of the "bat ear" above Batgirl's hand!

Great piece!!  Small detail, but I love the blimp in the background.  Batman and Batgirl aren't bad either!

Probably. I have a grudging affection for that car, despite its birth.

Fun indeed.  I've become so accustomed to glum superheroes, it seems odd to see them smiling.  Imagine -- looking like they're off on a grand adventure, rather than a wearisome burden.

Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with the others about Batgirl, you really draw her well. 

I was wondering JB if you have ever drawn Harley Quinn before?

Restores my faith in comic fandom that more and more commission requests these days seem to specify smiling superheroes.

Great commish, as always!
