It's Wacky Reference Wednesday Number 300!!!! You can celebrate by picking up Hellboy, which hits shelves today. If you need convincing, there's a preview at Entertainment Weekly. If you're still not sold, It's written by Mike Mignola and Chris Roberson with inks by my Pops and colors by Dave Stewart. If you still need more reasons... I can't help you.


I make a pretty convincing child.

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 299

BATMAN: BLACK & WHITE #5, PAGE 5. 2013. 
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

Not much in the way of figure reference here, but I did need at least one shot. I did my best impression of being caught in the exhaust of a rocket engine. (I hope that cape is flame retardant!) Other reference included a Sparrow missile and Wollaton Hall.
