More Superhero Vignettes
Some more superhero vignettes, with the goal of writing a few 5pg stories for various superheroes. I'll be updating this every so often, so keep an eye on these various tales.

Notes:

1. Superman

Well you know who Joey and Sam are ;) Thought of this scenario, before the "intro arc", where their adoption of Barkley might have been more exciting than Sam revealed to Damian ;) Plus it's just a nice tale to tell.

2.  Wonder Woman

Wanted to tell a tale with little to no dialogue as possible.

3. Batman

My nod to Gibbons/Giffen via a nine panel page.

The new job starts tomorrow and I'm excited.

Still have no idea what my schedule is yet, but hopefully it's flexible.

And a week from tomorrow is the Danny Elfman concert!

Also, thinking of continuing my Superboy fan script idea, continuing from where Superboy: The Teen of Steel Issue 1 left off. I should focus on one story idea at a time and slowly continue other ideas, and so on :)

Of course, that will be when I can carve myself out some writing time, once I know my schedule.
