20" x 30" illustration of Batman and Reed Richards vs. MODOK, Psycho Man, the Four Armed Terror, and The Lump. The background is Reed Richard's lab with lots of high-tech gizmo's. Details are:

- Batman in 1970's Adams/Aparo costume
- Reed in the black costume you designed
- MODOK and Psycho Man as you have drawn them in recent commissions

In case you need it, the references for the other characters are:

- Four Armed Terror appeared in Jimmy Olsen # 137
- The Lump appeared in Mr. Miracle # 8

Oh My God.  The Four Armed Terror and M.O.D.O.K. are astounding!

BRAVO!

Awesome piece, JB.  I think the Four Armed Terror is my favorite.

What a wonderful idea for a commission. Love any type of crossovers. Love the shot going through Batman's cape.

It never fails to impress me the way JB draws Batman holding onto his rope in commissions.

Batman to the rescue!  He should have Reed free in about 30 seconds.

MODOK sure is turning up a lot in commissions lately.

Excellent; I LOVE the Four Armed Terror. That's some of my favorite
inking of yours. Also, this maybe your creepiest M.O.D.O.K. yet.

A curious point about the Four-Armed Terror -- looking at all the blacks Kirby applied to the character, which I have carried thru to this drawing, I really have to wonder if Jack intended this creature to be. . . yellow!!

I love that these commissions tell a story.  The thought that you put into writing them is astounding, but then again it looks as it comes very naturally to you.

That's mind-boggling in both conception and execution. Talk about seeing a bunch of characters together that I wouldn't have ever imagined being together!

I really like the detail on the captured Reed, with his craning neck struggling to see what's going on or break free, and also the fact that MODOK blasted a hole through Batman's cape. Very cool little flourishes that really add tension and movement to a single frame of action.
