Batman and the (Astro) Boy Wonder by Nick-Perks Batman and the (Astro) Boy Wonder by Nick-Perks
Batman and the (Astro) Boy Wonder.
I had never watched any Astro Boy, and Astro Boy's face isn't at all faithful. However, it was the starting point of the painting - a face so sweet!
It was always a little illogical Batman having a brightly coloured teen sidekick, and this just emphasises that.
Watercolour on paper, scanned in and enhanced (I think)

That's interesting, Astroboy as Robin.

This fits in better with the scifi Batman stories of the Silver Age!

This is almost...surreal! Classic Batman, dark & grim in the bg, and then this escapee from Japanese pop culture in the foreground. He almost seems to personify that particular brand of weaponized cuteness found in certain mangas :D Definitely not designed to strike fear into anyone's heart!
