Up And At Them Color Detail by DannyNicholas Up And At Them Color Detail by DannyNicholas
I'm paying two tributes. One: Batman. Two: The Simpsons.

The Simpsons episode “Radioactive Man” from season 7 is possibly my favorite of the series. It’s the episode where Hollywood invades the town of Springfield to film “Radioactive Man” The Movie, and surprisingly Millhouse wins the part of the sidekick, “Fallout Boy.”

For a while, I wanted to draw a sort of crossover or homage with Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy and old issues of Batman and Robin comics. Of course, I thought about Batman issue 9 with the famous pose of Batman and Robin hit with a spotlight. Then, I found issue 183 where the cover pays reference to the Batman 60s TV series. In the cover, Robin is answering the Bat-Phone and alerts Batman they have to go out and solve a crime. But Batman, overworked, just wants to take the night off to watch his own TV show.

I thought this would work perfectly with the “Simpsons” humor, and have Millhouse and Rainier Wolfcastle as Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy in the same situation except watching the TV series they are featured in.

“My Eyes! The goggles do nothing!”

Crayola color pencils and Prismacolor markers on card stock paper which gave a nice faded comic book art look.
