Waaaay back in One Moment in Time, I utilized a ton of Sketchup models that Joe Quesada gave me. He had used the models himself and, since the story had the same setting, it only made sense to use them as well. They especially came in handy for the hospital scenes, which always take me a long ...

Did I ever post this reference? If I did, I don't have a record of it (and I apologize). My Dad inked this piece and I added the post-it notes and strings digitally. The string motif was taken from a page of the book, a splash that featured the Riddler.
