TLIID 95Repent HarleyQuinn said the BatTickTockMan by AxelMedellin TLIID 95Repent HarleyQuinn said the BatTickTockMan by AxelMedellin
Girls and boys, this week in The Line it is Drawn, as a homage to Ray Bradbury, we have comic book characters in famous science fiction stories.

This is maybe Harlan Ellison's most famous story, with good reason. Treat yourselves and go read it. And if Harlan is surfing the web, I hope he doesn't get too mad at yours truly...

The full gallery here:

Have a nice weekend, folks.

I love Harley Quinn. She's so evil and twisted. Very nice work on the picture.

...What the actual fuck?

Okay, this is probably more sane the orignal story, and that's not a common outcome.  What's it called?

Well, that was basically my reaction to this picture. :D

What is the story that this is based off called?

Repent, Harlequin, said the Tick-Tock Man, by Harlan Ellison. It's really easy to get, it's been reprinted since forever.

He may be cranky, but he isn't stupid; if Viagra had been around back then, the schedule would have been messed up for more than seven mintues...

and the TickTockBat is truly scary - -wonderful job!

TickTockBat is a much simpler name... I should have thought of that!

Thanks so much, Thea!

(Still, the bad dreams about a Harlan-sized hole in the wall and a Shouting beast head in the bed did haunt me a bit...)

Thanks for the compliment, but I'm not Thea -- nowhere near as good an artist. Call me Becca. :smile:

Lol I love how harley has strong jaw lines making it more manly and that her bosom is practically flat.
Also it's kinda weird to see the neck be elongated so far.

I usually rattle of quite a few suggestions, but this was the only one that really occurred to me, and I am so gald you took it! Excellent work; Bat Tick Tock is effing terrifying. Seriously, going to haunt my dreams.

Thanks for the suggestion! It was a perfect fit, and so obvious I can't believe I never thought of it before! Not too bad Bat Tick Tock dreams to you...
