SANDMAN by Declan Shalvey






















With everyone knocking it out of the park this week, I felt I had to up my game and put some thought into this one. Was originally just gonna draw the Sandman on top and keep a long vertical format, but the drawing kept changing quite naturally. Normally I plan a layout in advance but this one developed quite organically on the page.

Dec! This is Class x10! Turn this into a bookmark, throw your name and info on the other side, and you have the coolest con takeaway ever!

Clever, clever stuff - and your rendering of Wesley Dodds is glorious. You intimate a beautiful boot! But if you ever commit a crime you're going to be eminently catchable - your fingerprints are all over these things!
