The Original pencils to the NAIL TPB.

The paper stock I used for this double page spread was great to pencil on but far less
accommodating for ink. Not a problem with a large image but this was pretty detailed. I
traced the whole thing through onto a more ink friendly paper-- And I'm glad I did
because the inked original was lost/mislaid/stolen.

So, IF anyone does think they have the original cover, they don't. I do!
In 2004 I had periods of a week or so  where I was waiting for the next Uncanny plot, so I dug out a heap of
old sketches and half completed drawings and finished them.These are the first three.

The relationship
between Batman and

over the decades but I
always like the weird Cat
and (winged) Mouse
romance and it became
an integral part of The
Nail.

introduced to the
comic-art vocabulary.
