Batman: Li'L Gotham by duss005 Batman: Li'L Gotham by duss005
it's finally here- the project i've been pushing to DC for almost 5 years now, see's launch tomorrow on Halloween. The series that we're calling The Calender of Small Events is a brand new series written by myself and long time partner in crime Derek Fridolfs :icondfridolfs: and completely illustrated by myself in this style. For the next entire year, see these guys in short holiday themed stories. LOTS of fun, and honestly, even more fun for me to draw. Read more about it here before it launches tomorrow-
[link]

The series will be available for purchase download for just .99 cents each month ( yes, before folks like myself moan and groan, its a digital first- which means it'll hit print later one, but released in digital format FIRST) thru the DC website [link].

If you've ever dug this stuff, here's me now askin you to join us and really make this book a success. thanks y'all!

This is fantastic! You make excellent use of lighting in your paintings (i.e. their costumes and clothing). The expressions and interactions of the characters are great.

Hey, I just picked up an issue of your new comic at Barnes and Noble, and totally fell in love with the style! Love all the characters here, especially the way you drew the Mad Hatter. Awesome work! :D

Just bought the print version of this and it is amazing! I'm doing a Cover of the Week blog posting but as I was listing all the details I noticed two characters that I wasn't familiar with. Doing some research I found the identity of one (Colin Wilkes) but am still unsure of the identity of the man playing the guitar. Who is this character?

I love how lively and chaotic this is, I always have to just close out of the window in order to make myself stop looking at every different little bit of it. :D Eagerly anticipating the print version so I can shove it in people's faces at every possible opportunity!

Cool! I actually don't recognize two of 'em--the guy next to the Carpenter, and the one with the guitar--but I'm delighted to be wrong in my first impression that Witchboy's cat was in Mr. Freeze's old bubble helmet. ;)

It was hard to enjoy ourselves knowing what was happening, but at least we weren't cooped up in an airport or losing a house or something. Makes you appreciate the small things.

I want to say thank you.

Thank you for fighting to get a fun book out.
I am serious, since the relaunch I have dropped reading all of DCs "mainstream books" [same with marvel and it's little marvel now crap].

I am sick and tired of the dark stories.
I am tired of not having variety in my choices for book themes and you final got a book I enjoy. Well this and Superman Family Adventures which is also a delight.

I have strong disapprovals of these companies an the way they are managed and I appreciate people like you who try to make comics fun again instead of just baiting to get some award.
Thank you.

I also would like to hope in the future you and your collaborative friend would go on to image and create your on comic series. I'd like to see what the creative minds behind this funny little book can do with making their own creations instead of using all these premade characters.

Its nice to see you guys having fun. Lately its just felt like DC wants to be all serious that the likes of Ame-Comi, Superman Family and now this are such bits of light hearted good humor among other comics that have been so serious or some even horrific. I also enjoy the fact you ignore the 'reboot' and everyone is where they should be and dressed how they should be.

Please keep up the wonderful work. ^^
