This Probably Won't Count

For Week 18 of 52, Douglas Wolk issued the following challenge:
Actually, here's a challenge for 52 Pickup's readers: design a card for a Rider-Waite-style tarot deck whose image is an unaltered panel, or fragment of a panel, from a DC comic.
I wasn't going to participate, since it's hard to find the right symbols in a panel that wasn't working for representing the tarot, but this was irresistable.

Normally, The Fool would include a cliff for him to walk off of, and a dog nipping at his heels. I went for charm over symbolism here.

  1. It's 7 in the morning, my head and shoulder hurts. My mouth tastes foul. I can't find change for the subway and you're making me laugh.

    Thanks.

  2. Why does Mr Rayner have a green penis for a right forearm? Is this some kind of occult symbology? Is he secretly a worshipper of Crowley?

    My word verification code is dckbpzu, the first three letters of which seem strangely appropriate.

  3. Ahhhh...some Kyle Rayner goodness. Or dimwitedness or whatever. Thank you for making me laugh.

  4. I don't care if it counts, it should totally win anyway.

  5. Can I just use this opportunity to say that goofy mask or no, that costume is so much better than the stupid Ion or post-#150 Lee costume?

  6. I dont understand - Kyle can make the Ring do/make anything, and so he uses it to *make a crowbar* for him to *work with his hands* to open this crypt thing? Am I missing something here?

  7. Great panel choice, Ragnell. It definitely works.

  8. I am so printing this thing off. Damn you Ragnell! You've forced me to end my two year long color ink cartridge fast.

  9. "I dont understand - Kyle can make the Ring do/make anything, and so he uses it to *make a crowbar* for him to *work with his hands* to open this crypt thing? Am I missing something here?"

    Not only that, but he makes a *short* crowbar, when he could make a twenty foot crowbar that would give him a huge lever arm, and that thing would pop in a jiffy.

    Hell, he could probably make a twenty foot crowbar, a big pivot point, and a giant green hammer to whack the crowbar with.

    At least he didn't make a tiny green nail file with which to saw through it.
