Comic Character of the Month: Recurring CONTEST!This Month's Character'
[Oliver Jonas "Ollie" Queen
Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, we choose a comic book character, and people submit artwork based on that character.
All artwork in the Comic Underground Gallery based on that character is automatically included in contest; however, please enter all submissions into the Comic Character of the Month gallery folder. It takes many hours to filter through the entire gallery, so please enter your work in the right folder so that we can post the feature quicker!
The winner gets 10 deviantART points, a permanent place for their winning work in the Featured section. Everyone who submitted work will have their work in a group feature.

Titan Justice chapter 5: True Love
Over the next few days since Wally's return Raven was exhausted between using her powers to help Wally West in his rehab and doing her normal hero duties. As a result of the hectic schedule Raven had little to no time to meditate which eventually forced Raven to go into Nevermore to deal with her emoticlones.
Raven: Look I'm exhausted so if you guys could please shut up for awhile.
Brave: Not until you've listened to what we have to say.
Raven: Ughh fine get on with it.
Rage: I wanna rip that boy band apart!!!
Raven: Not happening.
Timid: Could we possibly, maybe sing with Beast at the Battle of the Bands?
The other emoticlones nodded in agreement as Raven rolled her eyes.
Raven: Why in the world would you want me to go and join that Battle of the Bands stuff.
Happy: Because we can sing!!!
Lust: Plus we know Primal wants to do the nasty as much as we do.
Raven blushed at Lust's comment.
Knowledge: You know this could be a good opportunity

Titan Justice chapter 2: Back in Black
-Jump City Bar///9:45PM-
On a stormy night in Jump City a silver haired vixen and the sixth Titan found herself walking into a local bar to support her brother's passion for music when she stumpled upon a fellow hero apparently drowning his sorrows.
Ravager: "So what brings such a handsome Atlantean stud like you around here huh Kaldur?"
Kaldur: "Drinking obviously and the name is Jackson Hyde when I'm around surface dwellers. Why are you here Rose?"
Ravager: "Supporting Jericho and his love of singing."
As Ravager sat beside Kaldur and ordered a drink she could tell her old acquaintance was troubled.
Ravager: "Wally wasn't your fault you know."
Kaldur: "Rose stop--"
Ravager: "Tula wasn't your fault either."
Kaldur: "Rose I said STOP!"
Kaldur in anger slammed his glass on the counter as he angrily left.
Ravager: "Smooth Rose, real smooth. Only guy that could possibly relate to me and I run him off."
Ravager in an impulsive decision downed her glas

Black Manta: "Beast do me a favor and turn the tv down, will ya?"
Manta unknown to the others was nursing his hangover from the night before as well as sharing Ravager's bed.
Beast: "Whatever, I was done with it anyways."
Beast complied by turning the tv off and leaving the room.
Cyborg: "What's with B?"
Raven: "It's the anniversary of that little traitor breaking his heart after her resurrection."
Ravager: "Ya know in hindsight beating Trigon kinda sucked, huh?"
Ravager commented only to catch a four eyed glare from Raven.
Ravager: "Kidding Raven, geez. I'm just saying hoorah for saving the universe and all, but Terra got defossilized and my dad cheated death...... again."
Raven: "Still pissed bout the eye I take it?"
Ravager: "No Goth Queen I just love looking like a silver haired pirate, at
Emma and RexWatching her apply lipstick shouldn't be this interesting but he was really, really bored. Rex stood in the doorway of Emma's room and had plans on bothering her as usual. "Objectifying yourself much Emma?" He asked, a sarcastic smile firmly in place.
"I have a date," She replied, glancing down at a small mirror in her hand and sounding way too preoccupied for his liking.
"Really?" He injected a note of skepticism into his voice as he strolled toward her.
"Don't sound so surprised Rex."
Shrugging he said, "It's just that you hadn't mentioned you were seeing anyone, especially to Mom or Dad."
Leaning against the edge of her desk, he watched her retract the lipstick and stick the cap back on. When he'd decided to come by to bug her, he'd expected to find her nose deep in schoolwork or reading a book, not doing something girly like putting on makeup.
"Do I tell you everything about my personal life?" She sharply asked.
"Actually yeah, usually you do. You trust me more than our parents; yo
Facing the Older SisterEmma stared hard into the brown eyes, her gaze hardening. She didn't mind her brother dating, she just didn't like this "blond-bimbo", as she called her, that Rex asked out. It had been quite simple to drag the girl into the girl's locker room at the beginning of the school day. No one was around and it was the perfect place for her lecture.
"Listen, I know you're dating Rex right now but you better be careful with how you treat him. He may be your boyfriend but he is my little brother. You'd do best to remember that. You know what that means, right? That means that if you ever make him cry, if you ever cause him any harm, I will make you regret it dearly. Harm him physically and you will suffer. Harm him emotionally and I will never allow you to forget your blunder."
She leaned in closer as the blond girl squirmed. "You'd better brand this moment into your memory. Treat him as he deserves to be treated. Give him the space he needs when he needs it and never let him feel infer
In Her ShadowRex supposed that this was something all younger brothers and sisters felt at some point in their lives. It was some sort of nightmare, always settled into the back of their minds, eating away at their subconscious, building the pressure placed upon their shoulders.
This was the kind of thing Rex dreaded whenever he walked into school. His fourth grade teacher was the same teacher that Emma had two years ago. That was the way it had been since kindergarten but it had never been a problem before today. The possibility of such an event had only been a nagging fear and he had prayed it would stay that way.
But the 61% on the paper in front of him and the echoing words of the middle-aged woman pulled him into every younger sibling's nightmare.
"I was expecting more from you. Your sister was so bright."
How could anyone expect anything from Emma Stewart's brother? Sometimes, that's all Rex was, Emma's little brother who would never ever be as great as she was.
Like so many other younger sib
Needing YouIt was dark outside, even though it probably wasn't even five in the afternoon yet. The light was on in her apartment so he knew she was there. So close, yet they couldn't have been further apart from each other.
Why did he let his insecurities take the best of him? Fear. That's what it all came down to. Fear of not being enough. Fear of not deserving her. She was everything. She showed him kindness and patience and love. She came to trust him and he wanted to offer her everything. But he'd let his fears overrule him. He'd hurt her, done exactly what he'd promised himself he'd never do.
The cold air swirled around him, making the light snowfall seem almost majestic. If this was any other day, he would've gladly taken a moment or two to truly appreciate and take in the dazzling sight before him. But not today. Today the hole in his chest was too painful. His heart was missing.
He had been foolish and stupid. He knew it the second the words had left his mouth. He hadn't meant a thing tha

She-Hulk on Muscle BeachShe-Hulk on Muscle Beach
She-Hulk on Muscle Beach by Joe Jusko, is a timeless piece that was done as a poster in the late 1980's. It's one of two pieces that immediately comes to my mind when I think of Shulkie ( the other being the cover of Marvel Graphic Novel Vol 18 by John Bryne ). I felt it was necessary to pay homage to this iconic image.
I was excited to see that EJ Morges ( Press Oblivion ) was accepting commissions. Of course, I first commissioned the obligatory Akiko Daimon: M
