Grayson, well actually Nightwing in disguise...

This was a commission from my good friend Darrell Taylor (Taylor Network Podcasts) for our friend, writer and author Tom King. He co-writes the comic Grayson for DC Comics. This sketch was a Christmas present for him. I didn't post it earlier because I was still in the middle of my Joe-A-Day sketches.

Dick Grayson/Nightwing is my absolute favorite DC Character! Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of the other characters too. Over all I prefer the heroes that don't have massive powers and abilities. They're skilled humans who train, push themselves to the limit for the greater good of others. Batman is a perfect example of this, and I like Batman. But he's almost too good at it. What I liked most about Nightwing is that we've gotten a chance to see him grow as a character and hero. From the first Robin, to Nightwing, and now simply Grayson (secret agent) we've seen him fail and get up, become better, fail and get up, etc... Now that's the kind of stuff I can relate to!

The sketch I did wasn't on a blank cover, I just put the title and names on there as a mock cover to see how it'd look.
