Heres my prelim sketches for the cover, i think im going to go with the bottom left idea in the outline...its inspired by jeffs idea and also my original idea...so thanks for letting me rip you off in advance! The other ideas from left to right, a kind of 3 panel thing with him choking out the dummy...kinda weird i guess, then one where commish gordon is tied up in the Ventriloquists kitchen with Scarface threatening that batman will never find him and they will kill him as soon as they finish their breakfast...and of course all the time the Ventriloquist is drinking...classic gag. I was also toying with the idea of the doll in a room filled with babies dressed just like him and him taunting batman...Would you dare risk killing an inocent child! and he would obviously look way different but batman couldnt tell!
Oh well...thankfully its my day off and i live right in the middle of a copy store and a burger king within walking distance so i ran out and made some copies got some lunch and am starting on the cover/pinup now! I was gonna make the commissioner actually Robin or put Robin at the feet of the badguy with the downed cops but it seemed too tacked on.
