I understand I might have picked up something of a reputation as being someone interested in a certain acrobatic superhero being put into perilous situations and, in fairness, it’s not entirely without foundation! :) (Don’t ask me to explain it, because I can’t)
I’m not a fan of the OTT school of such things, a little light imperilment, perhaps themed along the lines of the villain in question, but no gore, nothing showing dead bodies, nothing out of the “Saw” movies for example. I prefer it within the realms of the Comic Code Authority (more or less) and for preference with a certain… playfulness to the concept, the notion that the peril is real, but will probably never manifest because that’s not how comics work.
Mitch Ballard is one of the first commissioned artists I ever contacted when I started, and I was so lucky to do so, because if anyone “gets” my tastes, it’s him and his art style is as crisp and clean as I could wish (There’s a certain Perez quality to it, more than a little Don Newton, and a healthy dash of Giordano, and those three are tough to beat in my personal favourite comic artists stakes). I make a little suggestion to him, and he never puts less than his all into it, coming up with an end product that far outstrips my expectations every single time.
He does excellent NON Grayson in peril work too, and I heartily recommend his CAF page for a browse (and mine too).
Not all of the above images are mine I should add, so it’s not just me enjoying the concept, which is something of a relief I must say, but hope you enjoy it too.
