Arriving late with my Fashion Disaster for the Periscope Sketch Challenge. I would have liked to color this, but that’s not going to happen. Try to imagine Lynn Varley colors on this;) I’m sure the comic readers out there recognize the Dark Knight Returns reference here. Batman in the pose of the cover to Book 3 and the Batarang in Joker’s eye, but the more obscure reference is from one of my all time favorite comics from childhood, Batman Vs. The Hulk written by Len Wein, penciled by Jose Garcia Lopez and inked by the late Dick Giordano. Here’s the scan from the page where Joker has the power to make all of his own wildest dreams come true. I just wanted to see what it might have looked like if Miller included it in The Dark Knight Returns. Batman does not look happy to be initiated into the Insane Clown Posse, does he?
