Killer Croc by Adam Rosenlund
I was going to do Professor Pyg, but since Rick already did one, I decided to hash out some beef I have with the way Killer Croc is portrayed in the comics. I really dislike him being portrayed as a gigantic lizard. Tail, long jaw, plated scales, et al. It's stupid. I like the character better as a big dude with a really bad genetic disorder, like hyperkeratosis. So I drew him like that. If everyone else at DC could please just follow that example when making style guides for the relaunch version of Croc instead of going the T-Rex in a trenchcoat route, I'd appreciate it. They can even put him in a V-collar shirt and segmented armor like the rest of the redesigned characters since that seems to be their thing now.
