Welcome to the DC Comics Art Academy, a series of art tutorials recorded at Comic-Cons featuring many of the gifted and unique artists working for DC today. In today's installment, Deathstroke artist Paolo Pantalena takes us through his detailed pencil work, drawing both Batman and Deathstroke. He also discusses what it was like developing as an artist during the 1990s, why Superman is the hardest hero to draw, and what some of the unique challenges are drawing Slade Wilson (in short, weapons!).
Academic by day, urban avenger by night, Jefferson Pierce has fought all levels of crime and corruption as a solo hero, a Justice Leaguer, and an Outsider.
Born of experiments and accidents, and cast out from society, the Doom Patrol occupies the weirder corners of the universe.
For some, super powers are anything but a blessing. The Doom Patrol, appropriate to their rather dire-sounding name, are a group of DC superheroes who, for one reason or another, have found themselves struggling against the expectations, judgment and constraints of a society that may not always understand them or their gifts. And for that, they've often found themselves pushed to the margins.
The result of a physics experiment fusing two different people into one super-powered "Nuclear Man," Firestorm is a living testament to the power of cooperation.
