Negs pulls a Joker... part 2

Posted May 11, 2009, 3:49:15 AM

This is the second part of the "comic book" practice. It basically was an excuse to learn how to do speech balloons and dynamic coloring in GIMP. (And play with some new splatter brushes, but that's neither here nor there...) Again, its a parody/homage to a Batman comic, with Negs playing the part of the Joker. There are a few minor changes from the original comic, which is credited and linked below.

Now that's out of the way, on with the story!

Continuing from the previous page, we have the heroic Quiverwing, aka Gosalyn Mallard, battling the fiendish Fearsome Five Four plus one very, very unwilling Bushroot while Negaduck waits on his favorite punching bag to show up. Too bad he hadn't got the memo about Darkwing being out of comission. And poor Megavolt...

The first time I've ever drawn him, and what happens? He gets decked by a girl. And Negaduck care about poor little Sparky? Nope! He's too busy acting like a prima-donna who just got snubbed to care about anything else... Not even Quiverwing pointing Darkwing's Gas Gun at him. Let's just say it's going to really suck for her when Negs pulls his shit together and notices it...

The layout, original dialogue, and comic are form Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #106 "Duty Part 2" (May 1998), with the full credits listed on the linked picture. This page was based off the second page featured.
All rights to the original comic and it's characters belong to DC. Negaduck belongs to Disney.
