After seeing a blog called DC-Fifty TOO!, I became inspired to revisit an old painting and dress it up like a cover.
For those who haven't seen DC-Fifty TOO!, it's a blog where "a plethora of very talented - and very different - cartoonists" were challenged with creating their own new properties for the DC comics reboot. Go check it out! There is some great stuff there!!
For my revamp, I took an old painting I had done a year ago, and designed a "Elseworld's Finest" cover. Elseworld's Finest would be more like Brave and the Bold or old Marvel Team-Ups.
Every issue would feature the Terry McGuiness Batman with a different guest. The guests would not only be other heroes(or even villians) from the Batman Beyond timeline, but also characters from the current timeline or even dimensional crossovers(maybe Batmite?)
With the right person writing it, we could come up with creative ways to include any character. So with that it mind, my first choice to write a book like this would be Chris Roberson.
This will almost surely never come to be, but that won't stop Chris and I from having a "great success of that which surely never came to be" celebration the next time I see him.
