As it turned out, you really only see the snake in two locations – crushing a skyway in Downtown Minneapolis and at the Guthrie Theater. Still, chose a skyway in downtown Minneapolis that offered a view of a number of iconic buildings and landmarks in Minneapolis, and when the script called for the heroes to be perched on a building overlooking the Guthrie, I found another landmark building that was positioned correctly to do the job!

Right now I’m getting to do the “Young Justice” design for a major villain in the DC Universe and loving it. You’ll have to check out Young Justice #20 to see who it is!

* Lots of Minneapolis, which you probably loved to draw. With all the landmarks, did you keep any sense of continuity (did you plot out the snake’s route?), or did you just cram as many in there as you could?
* A lot of the bystanders are drawn with such detail – the woman at Nicolet Mall, the scarf guy at Guthrie Theater – that I suspect they’re based on friends of yours.

So while it would have been fun to show Shimmer catching one of Artemis’ arrows, I instead had her parrying attacks from Kid Flash, while Artemis’s arrows stick in Mammoth’s armored hide.

And I’m looking forward to more Kobra, too. The rematch with Robin should be fun!

Looking forward to Kobra – too bad he hasn’t appeared since episode 4.
