Family portrait based on yesterday’s Li’l Gotham, which YOU ALL SHOULD BUY.
Ergh I’m never satisfied with my art sigh. Sorry for lazy colors. It’s less laziness and more artistic frustration.
Li’l Gotham #11
the ninja photo bomb for our Mother’s day and Father’s day chapters. You can download the mother’s day chapter tomorrow ( sunday, in a few hours) directly from DC here http://www.readdcentertainment.com/Batman-Lil-Gotham/comics-series/9360
Father’s day chapter comes June 9th, also huge big thanks in advance to all those reading this title!
Summary: How Nell Little became Batgirl, as seen in Steph’s Black Mercy induced dreams in Batgirl #24. When children in Gotham start mysteriously falling into comas, Steph starts to follow the case. But she didn’t anticipate unforeseen circumstances taking her out of the field or Nell deciding to take the case into her own hands, with a bit of help from Damian.
Pairings: Mostly Tim/Steph and eventual Damian/Nell, but there’s also some Dick/Babs.
Author’s notes: Started another fic for reasons unknown. I have a fondness for minor characters, apparently. And writing long-ish fics. Not going to cross-post on ff.net for now.
mother’s day is over, but our mother’s day chapter actually comes out this Sunday. so its not really a preview, but here’s a page from the mother’s day chapter that comes out this weekend. Because Teal demanded it.
and you can check here this sunday for the entire chapter, words and all that by Derek Fridolfs and myself- http://www.readdcentertainment.com/Batman-Lil-Gotham/comics-series/9360

It’s not easy to become Mommy’s darling again. But keep trying, Little D, maybe she will not try and kill you in return.
Apart from that, thanks for the reminder!
P.S.: Have I mentioned how extremely kawaii this issue of Li’l Gotham is?! The cuteness is almost unbearable!
I don’t know what the good people at DC have in store for Batman #20, but THIS is the team-up the fans have been waiting for since the beginning of the New 52: Damian Wayne, Colin Wilkes, Katana AND Tim Drake! Would you believe it?! It’s like a fandom’s dream come true.
It seems that Dustin Nguyen is determined to give the fans everything that has been lacking since the reboot, or at least since Batman Incorporated #8. And we should be very grateful for that.
It also appears to me that Li’l Gotham #10 has a more realistic storyline than the previous issues, thus making up for the stories that can no longer be told after Damian’s death in the New 52 universe.
There is even some actual development going on: Colin has his own garage now in the hideout Damian gave him, and Red Robin seems to have become Nightwing’s sidekick, if I understood Barbara correctly.
In other words: Li’l Gotham is going where The New 52 should have progressed. Wouldn’t it be an option to create a new comic line based on the pre-reboot universe of Li’l Gotham, but with non-chibi characters and serious storylines? I’d most certainly subscribe.
You’re all chibis in this series, Tim, so you shouldn’t try to provoke a fight. But making Damian look like an angry little monkey was definitely worth it.
