Nightwing - Experimental
Inks, markers on 11x17 board
I typed, like, five dick jokes under this post at first…
But uh, hey look, it’s Nightwing.
I know fandom doesn’t like The Batman cartoon but this episode was cute.
I really like the design they used for Hal (with the added bonus of him being the right body type! YESSS!) His voice was good too. Really the only thing that bothered me was that he denied ever being Sinestro’s friend and Sinestro agreed, saying that he was his “best student”. Though that could be an alternate universe thing *shrugs*
I’ve been planning to watch this show for a while now. A lot of the fandom seems to hate it, but a few of my tumblr pals recommend it saying that Bruce is very likable in this.
But I did not know Hal was in this! And he’s so cute *____* and proper looking in general. I have a mighty need to watch this right now.
And look at that Batlantern handshake. And what is going on in that first screencap???
Always read the Didio commentary.
Two notes of import:
1. Didio hates “redundant” characters, and thought Nightwing was one of them. No wonder he’s got such a hate-on for legacy characters. I really do not like this man.
2. Dick teaming up with Ion, Donna Troy and Monitors? You know, back during Countdown there was a theory that they originally planned to have Dick instead of Jason, but swapped him out with Jason at the last minute for whatever reason. That sure does seem like the case now.
I usually read it too because boy does it explain A LOT of things. Definitely read it, guys, even if his smug and self congratulatory tone makes you sick.
Also lol @ him finding out just then that Dick was popular. Because it’s not like the Nightwing series was something people had begged for for years and that had been going strong for a decade at the point this commentary was written.
Dick’s reaction to his alternate self’s demise…because I’m pretty sure he’d giggle a little after finding out. xD
Just some lighthearted fun!
