I have to thank my daughter Hannah for coming up with this name. Unlucky 13 is a sad sack who has been possessed by 13 evil spirits. They swirl around in him and vie for control over his body, for which few of them have little regard. Whichever one gets the upper hand can usually be seen residing in Unlucky's headspace.

This is the product of me trying to get used to brush pennin'. Less than 20 minutes, no pencil underneath, with some white pastel pencil on top.
There's been a lot of talk 'round the comic shop amongst employees about much cooler Robin could and should be. He's a 15 year-old who's been trained to kick ass by the toughest guy on the planet...would he really be so whitebread? Would he really be too nervous to kiss a girl, or be terrible at tennis? Nah, he'd be all "F that I just pwned Penguin--again." I don't think anyone over 40 should write his book unless he's named Grant Morrison (who nailed it in recent Batman issues). If I were an editor at DC, I'd pay Vasilis Lolos a great sum of money to redesign, write and draw Robin. Or Brandon Graham. Or Jim Rugg. Or Nate Bellegarde. Or Cory Walker.
