Collection of after-work sketches from a couple of weeks ago. Hal there looks like Robin as Green Lantern because I originally started them as their manga incarnations. Justice League has got one now! (art done by Shiori Teshirogi and I think the first chapter’s out in Japan).

(And there was a batman manga back in the 80s! Japan liked batman too!)

The story begins
with Batman enlisting Catwoman’s help to break into a high security vault in
Japan which is something she is only too happy to do:
retrieving the special diamond from the vault, Bruce and Selina continue with
the primary mission of recruiting Mr. Unknown to Batman Incorporated. At this
stage in their relationship, there are no secret identities and the attraction
is still burning:
Let’s be honest -
we all know exactly what they did before going to work.
