Blazing Bat

Not long after I came up with Missile Mouse in 1992 (see all about that here) I came up with his nemesis: Blazing Bat. He's a fixture in MM mythology and a key player in Missile Mouse: Rescue on Tankium3. Below is the first drawing of MM fighting BB.

The years passed and I kept drawing Missile Mouse, but Blazing Bat got shelved. In the early 2000's my interest in the Missile Mouse character intensified and I thought I'd take another stab at the bat:

And now present day. I knew I wanted to bring Blazing Bat back to the Missile Mouse graphic novel series so that meant updating the design.

I didn’t know the bat was also almost 2 decennia old, nice post!
I did say that already on your other website is that right? ;-)

That is a pretty decent website you've got here, you must have been busy here.
