Well, I find the very idea of recreating the comic cover in LEGO ingenious, so I couldn't resist participating! :snicker:  I hope you'll like it!

*oh2*  A Penguin issue?! I'm... I'm speechless! I never would have expected this! :sarcasm:

I kid, Pengy. Very nice work if I do say so.  If only I weren't so damned busy this month, I might enter myself.

Within the limitations of LEGO, you did a great job!

Too bad there wasn't a modified nose you could throw in there :wink:

Good luck in the contest.

Simple, yet very effective. But I still have a few suggestions for improvements:
- use a black brick built background and a white circle for the moon.
- use two capes on Batman and stretch them on each side for the right effect - maybe also use the rubber for the hands position
- put Batman even further behind to make Penguin look even fatter - might have some problems with focus then but would let you:
- keep the proportion of the original cover format - not so slim and so tall

I know it's a bit nit-picking but these changes would make an already cool cover into perfect reflection of the real thing.

Very nice, Penguin! Very close to the original. If there's anything I would improve about it, it would be to give Batman his jetpack wings in order to closer resemble the dynamic shape from the cover, and maybe add a white 4x4 dish behind him to represent the moon.

Good luck!
