Unpublished Batman by Roboworks Unpublished Batman by Roboworks
back in like '01,'02 I was working on this Legends of the Dark Knight story that was canceled because they had canned the editor just after I started. They shelved everything he was involved with including me. That sucked, but that's how it goes sometimes. It would've taken me years to finish it. I was just hitting the uncompromising stage of my career. A stage I'm happy to say has passed. Thank God!

Anyway, this is the only page I have to show other than a bunch of layouts I aint posting. Sorry.

This is really really good! I like your style and the coloring is incredible!

But I have no idea what's going on.

If you don't mind me asking, what happened to Gordon? It looked like he was punched, but nobody touched him.

Dude, I love it. It caught my attention from the 'featured works' stuff at the bottom of the screen.

The expressions make the words un-necessary X3 <3
And it looks animated to me. Despite it being drawn under unpleasant circumstances it still stands out alot. The DD speaks for itself.

I love the colors on this, and Commissioner Gordon's pose in the first panel—it's so expressive, he reminds me of the Gordon from the Adam West show, blustering in all happy to see that Batman's on the case. :XD: I would've loved to have seen this in Legends, or maybe Batman Confidential nowadays.

Oh, I'm so sorry your hard work came to nothing! Well, not nothing -- there's still this fabulous page. Thank you so much for sharing it! I'm just finding you, and your style makes me *incredibly* happy. It's almost incongruous with the body, but I find it makes things even more dynamic and exciting. I can hear them crunching and gritting over the rubble, and that's just *cool*.

very clean!

it strikes me more of the Adam West campy Batman as opposed to any other version for some reason. Perhaps the expressive and kind of happy or excited feel The Batman has (instead of the stoic, grim figure we usually see)

woulda been cool to see this fleshed out!
