Hi @DCFanArtClub and welcome to the August Spotlight!
This month let’s try something a bit different by presenting 3 topics all at once. You can treat them like weekly challenges (and give yourself a week off) or just do one or two. It’s up to you and you have the whole month of August to work on them.
The three topics will align with 1) What happened in July, 2) What’s happening right now and 3) What’s coming up in August.
What happened in July?
Unfortunately, Alan Grant passed away on July 20, 2022 at the age of 73. Alan had a long career both in England with Judge Dredd and 2000 AD, but was also a driving force behind the Batman titles in the 80s and 90s. He was the writer and co-creator of several characters which went on to become mainstays in Batman’s Rogues Gallery. The Ventriloquist, Victor Zsasz, Jerimiah Arkham, Ratcatcher and Anarky are a few of his co-creations. Besides Batman, he also worked on L.E.G.I.O.N, the Demon and, perhaps most famously, Lobo.
What’s happening right now?
Harley Quinn season 3 premiered July 28 on HBO Max! The Harley animated series was a big part of the DC Universe site when it had original programming and it seems like it’s been forever since season 2 ended. HarlIvy is back!!
What’s Coming Up?
The Sandman debuts on Netflix on August 5! I know we did a Sandman challenge back when the trailer was released, but now the first season is here and that’s reason to celebrate! Try your hand at a likeness from the show or dive back into the rich comic book history for inspiration.
Share your thoughts and work below. What do you think of this format? How many topics do you think you’ll try?
