They are about to have a dispute. The favors end and the final decisions begin. Where their "friendship" will end and their decades long rivalry begins. I love how complicated their relationship is after 5 years. Can't wait to see more in #gotham#gobblepot#thisistheend
Evening Gothamites! Part of #GothamCity’s long history within the #Batman mythos highlights the evolution of the gang and turf wars and the villains who rule the #Gotham territory. In our session “Gotham City’s Gothic History”, we focused on 2004’s crossover arc ‘Batman: War Games’ which ended with #BlackMask gaining control of all territories and having leaders across the city accept this new underground order. Black Mask’s rule becomes threatened, however, by a new lethal villain calling himself the #RedHood, introduced in #JuddWinick’s series ‘Batman: #UnderTheHood’ (panels by #DougMahnke, #TomNguyen and #AlexSinclair from Batman 635 presented). While Black Mask brings in Mr. Freeze to aid in his organized crime, Batman and #Nightwing cross paths with the Red Hood who is ruining Black Mask's illegal weapons shipment. The #Joker is captured by Red Hood who beats him near death with a crowbar, revealing his identity as the second Robin, #JasonTodd who was murdered by Joker decades prior. Winick's 'Under the Hood' continues with "Family Reunion" when Black Mask asks #theBatman to stop this new rogue all while #BruceWayne becomes obsessed with learning about Todd’s resurrection. Elsewhere, Red Hood and Onyx team up momentarily until Batman goes toe to toe with Hood, who unmasks himself to an unmasked Bruce. Bruce learns that Jason Todd's body was never in his coffin as the Red Hood dominates Black Mask's operations. Although both Batman and Red Hood briefly come together to take down this villainous group, the #CapedCrusader has to stop Red Hood's current crime spree. Fighting in Crime Alley, Batman discovers Jason Todd is holding Joker hostage, leading to an explosive conclusion. We will have more of Gotham’s history soon so stay tuned for more #HistoryoftheBatman!✌🏼💙🦇🌃 #DCComics#ComicBooks#Comics
#Batman#Joker swipe right for a couple of close ups. The most challenging part of this was trying to use my typical style on the jokers face which had to stay primarily white to achieve the makeup look, actually leaving more white space on his face and using color to create depth in the creases etc. Thanks for checking it out!
