It’s pretty obvious that we are big fans of Dustin Nguyen’s artwork, and we’ve even featured his Lil’Batman sketches on the site before.  DC Entertainment must also like the look as as they are allowing Dustin and writer Derek Fridolfs team for a two two-page shorts spotlighting Lil’Gotham in the Detective Comics and Batman Annuals. Take the jump for the full image and more information!

One of my favorite aspects of the comic book convention is walking around Artist’s Alley and getting original sketchs and art from the creators present.  At Heroes Con, Roger Langridge whipped up this piece, and shared it with the world. Did lots of sketches! Oh yes! And by the end the requests for Doctor Who/Muppet mash-ups were coming thick and fast. Unlike many previous conventions, I didn’t get to bring a slush-pile of unwanted sketches back with me, but I reconstructed this one from memory on the plane home. So very cool.  I wonder who ended up being the Doctor?
