This is all Ted Naifeh's fault…yes Ted, I'm blaming you…in the nicest way possible, that is. Ted seemed to really like the Serial Batman/Joker illos I put up on Facebook…he even suggested I should do a strip in that genre/style. Well…this planted an idea in my empty little head that I just could not be rid of. I knew I did not have time what with deadlines and such to write and draw an entire strip just for fun (as much as I'd like to), but I came up with this concept of "BATMAN: THE LOST SERIAL" - as if one of those old serials from the 1940's had recently been discovered, one never seen before, and with that I thought I could draw a series of illustrations that looked like lobby cards or stills from that serial. So that's the plan, folks; I don't know how often I will be able to post these but I'll try for one a week, each featuring a classic Batman villain…and first up is the RIDDLER. Let me know if you like them.

I've been watching a slew of the old Batman film serials of late and as cheesey as they are I do love them; always bothered me though that the filmakers never used any of Batman's villains...why the heck did they not use the Joker? So, I have done my own version...this is what the Joker would have looked like in the Batman serials...I think!
When I posted this on Facebook artist/writer Ted Naifeh said, "This is the best Batman pin-up I've seen in years." How cool is that?!
