Batman is a Hoarder!


I continue to work on my 160 page monster comic, but I took a break to draw something that's been in the back of my mind for a while. My friend Anna Maria Cool recently mentioned she suspected Batman was a hoarder. The seed was planted. I knew I wouldn't stop thinking about it until I drew something about it. I can stop thinking about it now. Click to enlarge.



Btw, the objects on the bottom of page 1 are all from actual Batman stories;  Detective Comics #244, Detective Comics  #235, Detective Comics #241, respectively. (Disrespectively?)

Yes!

I love this so much, right down to the coloring bleeding onto Batman's chin

Mike Quilligan said...

Another fine strip! Keep up the good work!

Nick L said...

Brilliant! I had to look twice to realise this wasn't by the original artist. Great talent!

Steven Solo said...

Perfect.

Ed McDonald said...

Brilliant.

Funny!

I think you nailed it! The old "My-parents-were-murdered-and-this-is-how-cope" line is just a cover for Bruce's hoarding compulsion.

Great Comic!
L.O.L.

As a Hoarding Disorder researcher I find this inappropriately HILARIOUS (and frighteningly accurate!). Thanks :)

Wow, the comics style takes me back to my youth! And the premise makes SO much sense. Thanks for the laugh and the wonderful artwork.

Oh. My. God. Freakin' hilarious!!! Take it from a COH (Child of a Hoarder) - you nailed it!

I loved Peter Baldwin's comment too!

Bravo!!!

Do you start with a stick figure?
Please respond!!

Kerry Callen said...

Gavin, I start was very rough pencil sketches. The figures aren't really stick figures. They are ugly, bad drawings, which I trace into better pencils, which I then ink into slightly better images.

Alright, thanks!
