Books I'd Kill to Draw: Robin

As you can see from the title I've settled on my first new theme. Books I'd Kill to Draw is pretty self explanatory... I'll be posting sketches of characters from my favorite books past and present that I think would be a dream to work on (no matter how tonally wrong I may be for any particular title:)
These will be comics I grew up with, or am still reading, that have had a hand in shaping my comic tastes and style, and some that I just think would be a hell of a lot of fun to work on:)
We'll see some obvious stuff in these posts ( that means a fair share of capes and tights) but there'll definitely be a few surprises along the way as well.
Let's start with a pretty easy one. Below we have Robin...

...in true 90's fashion I imagine he's saying "Come get some.":)

Nice Robin! You gotta have a Batman title on that list...I hope :)

I'm surprised you're not being tapped for something like this.

I mean with you doing Daredevil...wasn't there any follow up from that gig?

The pose and slick inks on this are fantastic.

Thanks, Brian. Yeah, I've posted tons of Batman sketches in the past, so I kind of figured it was a given, but Batman is at the top of my list.
DD helped me get my Dead of Night gig for sure. This is just a bit of fun making a sort of wish-list.
If you squint the pose is actually in the shape of an "R".
