Girls and boys, this week at the Line it is Drawn, Action Historical Figures! I was really tempted by the suggestions of Marylin Monroe and Carl Sagan, but I went with Mary Shelley since she gave me the chance of some steampunk.
As for the head in the jar... Nick Perks, one of our fellow Liners, just made 100th consecutive weeks at the Line it is Drawn! Not an easy feat, so we salute him!
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?
