Derpy Earth 2 Robin  circa 1967 by tnperkins Derpy Earth 2 Robin  circa 1967 by tnperkins
Hey Folks,

Here we have a lunchtime sketch of the first adult Robin as seen in issue #55 of Justice League of America (1967). When I was a kid, I loved all that sort of goofiness.

Cheers

This was my favorite version of Robin. I really liked that he wanted to take after Batman. Great job!!!

Comics need to be more goofy. We need more Squirrel Girls and stuff and less 'Eternal Crisis of Infinite Doom Itself'.

Thanks, man! I know that it is a goofy costume, but in all truth... I love the goofiness of it. I think that at times the trend to make super heroes "real" also kinda makes them kinda boring...

I can't stop laughing at this! :lmao: It looks like a hastily thrown together Halloween costume! XD

Still, good job.

nice, really has a Paul Pope look to it. Makes me like that costume a bit more.

I won't lie. I think he could hang out with Pope's Batman Year 100. I lopved the earthiness of that design. Paul Pope is pretty great.

you really captured some of Pope's style with this pic, too. Wish he'd do more Batman.

Now who says the trunks over the tights don't work? This looks awesome.. I have a soft spot in my heart for this Frankensteinian costume design from way back in the day.

I remember this Robin well from the JLA/JSA crossovers. I didn't mind this costume so much, but old Mr. Terrific was freaky. Dick Dilin's art was so stiff, but he worked JLA so long that his work became an acquired taste that I missed when he passed away. With those Giordano or McLaughlin inks, you knew what you'd get. But if Jack Abel inked Dillon it was not good. Thanks for posting this artwork. Really enjoy your work!

I love comics both old and new.... but I will say that there are some truly ugly costume designs recently... but that is just my opinion. For others, they may be great.

they could have at least kept the traditional super-undies on Superman.
