Remembering Robotman.......

Well, as he used to be, courtesy of Matthew Clark:


  1. That is wonderful. Clark really did a stellar job updating the core and the rest of the cast for this book and the impending Robotman Spotlight issue should be nothing less than awesome.

  2. Words can't explain how much I'm looking forward to it. I loved #6 (Larry's spotlight), and I regularly re-read Rita's spotlight (#13). In fact, I think the latter is my favourite issue of this entire run.

    I wonder if Giffen/Clark can top that when it comes to Cliff........

  3. I don't know who else noticed, but the poster behind Cliff for KING-- "Cold Galaxies" is a parody of the cover for the rock band Queen's album "Hot Spaces", released in the spring of 1982 just months after the New Teen Titans story in which Cliff, Garfield and Dayton track down the killers and about five months before the DC Comics Presents issue with the Doom Patrol and Ambush Bug.
    I don't know if it's there to hint at what is or is not still acknowledged in continuity or just because "watching good people screaming 'let me out'" just seems like an appropriate description of Cliff's whole life.

  4. I'll take the last one Alex! Loved the sketch though, and I wish he could've drawn a DP Gallery issue. How cool would that have been?
