Dark Knights by Coran “Kizer” Stone
From the artist:
“So James the Terrifically talented Tucker, producer of “The Brave and Bold” series was starting work on the new Bat show and decided to take a chance on the new guy….Me! So I became character designer. I was floored as shit and had a ton of ideas for the darknight and fellers so I spent about 4 or 5 months cranking out a ton of of batty shizz! I did way more than any man should ever do and worked sometimes two nights straight without sleep on that stuff.
This is the sucky part> Unfortunately one of the heads at cartoon network felt that the concept was to dark and it got scraped. I of course thought that sucked ass but (back to good stuff) at the same time felt happy as hell that I had the one and a mill chance to work on a Bats series. Twas fun as hell!”
About the concept:
“Thought that back in his young lad days, Charles Xavier hung out with a mechanically inclined , genius…and sorta of a asshole of a kid named Gideon. They did pretty much everything together growing up but Gideon after awhile starting getting tired as hell seeing his best friend with the cool ass, mind controlling power become even more powerful.
So since he didn’t naturally acquire a mutant gift he decided to use his smarts to make some lovely ass toys or (as he would call them)” gifts” for himself. First up…a Repulser firing, all type of shit damaging, Eye piece.
As the years grew Charles and Gideons friendship grew apart but he is the reason Charles got Scott Summers aka Cyclops to be apart of his new team of mutants, Looks like he missed the guy.”
Rockabilly Batmand and Robin by Coran ‘Kizer’ Stone
“If you’ve been following me for a while your probably aware that I like to re-interpret just about everything. Thought I’d play with someone Else’s reinterpretation for a minute though. So when I saw artist Dennis Medri’s 1950’s inspired rockabilly Batman I thought “how would that look if made into a cartoon?”
