That faux cover came out beautifully, Mike, wonderful inks. I always like your Joker as well.

Dan C said...

Great job, Mike. Once you've finished Conan and your Game Changer book, I hope someone at DC taps you for a Batman story...

ANDY KUHN said...

you draw a killer batman, mike. i'd buy that book! :)

Brian Jones said...

Hell yeah!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Thanks for the kind words, guys! I appreciate it.

Cool work.
A Joker title by Mike Hawthorne would be cool. After all, how many freaking Batman spin offs are there? Say hello to the bad guy and give him some shine!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Vee, not for nothin', but I'd rock the SHIT out of a Joker comic! Seriously, I'd almost RATHER do a Joker comic over a Batman comic!

Thanks!
Mike

Steve Bryant said...

Love, love, love the mock cover!

And the character shots are pretty damn spiffy, too!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Thanks, Steve :)

Declan Shalvey said...

Aw man; these are LOVELY!

Urban Barbarian said...

You mad man! This should be a published cover!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Dec - Thanks! Glad you dig it ;)

Dan - Nah, it would need a lot more love. Had to bang it out too fast. To be honest, I wasn't 100% sure I wanted to finish it. Didn't like how it was turning out.

Still, glad you like it man :)

Francesco Francavilla said...

Oh man, you brought in the big guns (3 of them ;)). Wonderful all and each of them illos, Mike, kickass stuff :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Ron Salas said...

Beautiful, Mike! That Simonson cover is still one of my all-time favourites. Great take on it.
Have you every drawn Batman?
'Cause you should!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Francesco - Ha! I cheated. The two bottom ones are older. I wanted to post them because I didn't think my actual Twart showed their faces well.

Thanks!

Ron - No, I have not. Honestly, I've never drawn a superhero comic in my ten years as a comic artist. Someday I'll give in and do one :)

Thanks, bro! Your Batman is f-ing amazing!

Mike

Chris Samnee said...

Simply stunning! Still hoping for that gap-toothed Joker comic one day!

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Me too, Chris.

Thanks :)

Mike
