So here we are,brethren..The finale of two years of often hard and occasionally overwhelming work. We took an issue off and the entire team returned in full force for the final two issues. Jon Sibal on inks, Blond on colors, a cover by Amy Reeder and we were off to the races.
Security guard 1 is based on my buddy Drew. Security guard 2 is based on my other friend, Victor
I really wanted to milk the emotion from the scene, so I played it small. I kept Toyman's movements limited and shy.
Kid one is based on a picture of myself about 10 years old.
I love this scene so much, All of the tension between Cat and kara for almost two years finally came to a head and played out so well. The hardest part sometimes, are the intimate moments, no broad action, just small moments.
We also have a minin Bat cameo in the form of Detective Harvey Bullock GCPD.
the entire idea behind the Dollmaker , in my head was to harken back to a bygone era visually, sort of the antithesis of modern character design. I initially had this image of a sort of broken, fractured version of Little Lord Fauntleroy but it was a little too similar to to Klarion the witchboy. Matt Idelson suggested version 2, which as much more modern looking kid. I went back to the well with the third design, actually looking at some old images of cobblers and toymakers from the 18th century. I'n my head, his apron was made of human skin. Sterling suggested a more steampunk approach but we ultimately went with version 3.
