Love My Robin

Robin © DC Comics
By Corey Breen

Took awhile for this character to grow on me, especially since I grew up with Tim Drake as MY Robin, and Stephaine Brown becoming my FAVORITE Robin of all time (for two months before we freakin' KILLED her off, lol), but Damian Wayne has turned out to be pretty, damn, COOL!

I drew this trying to nail down a cover for the first in my "52 by 1" project. Not gonna use it; I came up with another idea, so I thought I'd share this one separately. I think that may happen here and there as I work through all 52 titles!

Hope you dig,

Have a good weekend everybody!

The order of which I am drawing all 52 covers has been drawn. I picked each title randomly out of a hat, and the order is as follows.

1. Batman & Robin

2. DCU Presents

3. Green Arrow

4. Batwing

5. Suicide Squad

6. Hawk & Dove

7. Animal Man

8. Grifter

9. Red Lanterns

10. Wonder Woman

11. Teen Titans

12. Superman

13. Aquaman

14. Legion of Superheroes

15. Batman

16. Stormwatch

17. The Flash

18. Justice League Dark

19. Superboy

20. Batgirl

21. Deathstroke

22. Demon Knights

23. Static Shock

24. All-Star Western

25. Batman The Dark Knight

26. Supergirl

27. Blackhawks

28. OMAC

29. Captain Atom

30. Green Lantern

31. Legion Lost

32. Voodoo

33. Detective Comics

34. Red Hood & Outlaws

35. Resurrection Man

36. I, Vampire

37. Mister Terrific

38. Savage Hawkman

39. Green Lantern Corps

40. Nightwing

41. Swamp Thing

42. Birds of Prey

43. Justice League International

44. Catwoman

45. Men of War

46. Frankenstein Agent of Shade

47. Green Lantern New Guardians

48. Blue Beetle

49. Batwoman

50. Fury of Firestorm

51. Action Comics

52. Justice League

I will stick to this order as much as humanly possible. And I SWEAR that Justice League came out LAST in the random draw. I did NOT do that on purpose. BUT what a way to end it once I get there, with the MAIN DCU book, JUSTICE LEAGUE! I think that just proves that this was fate and I was meant to do it this way, in this order.

So first up is Batman & Robin #1 cover.

Again, I need I HUGE jump start on this project so I can make sure that everyone following will get ONE cover a week for 52 weeks. So you wont see the first cover until I'm like 5-10 covers deep into the project. I will update you all on Twitter & Facebook on my progress.


52... here I GO!

52 by 1 Announced!

I've been thinking long and hard about what I want to REALLY focus on with my art these days. Do I focus on Concept Art? Do I focus on trying to be a Cover Artist? Do I focus on finally trying to do some Interior Sequential pages? "What do [I] want to DO with my life?" LOL

Well, I came up with lots of ideas, and finally it really hit me. I really WANT to be a Concept Artist, and I really want to be a Comic Book Cover Artist. I do not really want to do interiors. I know thats not the best thing to say to editors or people in the industry trying to take you seriously as a comic book artist, but it's just the truth. I excel at the big Pin-Up and the Big Money Shot, such as a cover would be. So I decided to continue with my concept art portfolio, that is a MUST. BUT, I also came up with an amazing project to do that I REALLY excited about, that will hopefully prove that I can be a comic book cover artist.

I'm calling it 52 by 1! As you all know, DC Comics, my main employer for the past 11 years, is doing an epic relaunch of their ENTIRE comic book line in September! All DCU comic books are "rebooting" and starting over at #1! There will be 52 #1 issues! Suffice to say, I am REALLY excited about it! All new titles, new costumes, new stories! Thinking about all of it the other day, I pondered how COOL it would be if all the new #1 issue's covers were done by ONE artist. I was like, "man, wouldn't it be cool if one artist tackled all 52 covers for the relaunch?!". Then I was thinking, "wow, that really would have been cool. I wonder who they could have got to pull that off?!" Then, like a light bulb above my head, I thought, "hey, I should just do it myself!"

So here's what I'm going to do! I am going to draw/ink/color ALL 52 NEW DC COMICS' "The New 52". That's right! I am going to pretend I am the cover artist on ALL the 52 newly launching comics. Hence, "52 by 1". 52 covers by ONE artist - ME! I am going to put all 52 titles in a hat, pick them out one by one, and for 52 weeks, post the cover to each book! It's gonna be a HUGE project, but one that I can't STOP thinking about, and one I think I definitely pull off!

I am mainly going to do this to have a cover art portfolio. I am going to prove to myself and to anyone who notices (fans of mine and possible employers), that I can be an amazing cover artist. It's that simple. So I hope you agree that this is a really cool project to do, and to give me all the encouragement to do all 52 titles' covers!

I can't wait to get started, but first I have to write down all the 52 books, and then pick them out of a hat the order I will be doing them in. I will do that tonight, and post the results tomorrow!

Wish me luck!


PS- I am going to need a head start on this though, to make sure I produce one cover a week for 52 weeks. So I'm gonna have to work out the specifics on the deadlines and whatnot at some point before I start. Will most likely thumbnail all 52 covers before I start, then try and get about 5-10 covers in the can before I start posting them, so I have at least a month head start.

Let me know what you all think and some suggestions on how I should best tackle this project I made for myself!
