Things That Should Not Be: Hurm.

I think today's post manages to top the dumbness and nerdiness of my previous record holder. Here's Rorschach of the Watchmen, resurrected as a Black Lantern, presumably planning to extract vengeance from Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias:

This one turned out a little better than I expected. As I was drawing it, I had no idea how I was going to approach the coloring, but things ended up working out. Occasionally that happens. Occasionally.

For those who missed this particular detail--the ink blots on his mask are in the midst of forming the Black Lantern symbol--you can thank Josh for suggesting that! And the ring construct grapple gun is fairly accurately derived from Rorschach's device in Watchmen.

My apologies to Alan Moore. I love the man's work, but I can't resist the lure of stupidly awesome nerd crossovers! I've got another Watchmen-related post in the "Things That Should Not Be" category... I think I might have it ready for next week. Stay tuned, it'll be hi-larious!
