Rogues Gallery: Shadow-Thief

From the Rogues Gallery tie-in book from the unread-by-me Underworld Unleashed event, this depiction of the Shadow-Thief is by John Van Fleet.

I am not really familiar with Van Fleet's work, but I like the pseudo-Impressionist take on Shadow-Thief he provides. One of the fundamental fears of childhood is the fear of the dark and this image riffs on that nicely. Far from being a typical Anderson inspired Shadow-Thief, this image is unique and memorable.

I'm not the only blogger relishing New Year's Evil this week. Find more malicious pin-up fun at the following:
Cheetah by Cliff Nielsen @ Diana Prince: Wonder Woman
Killer Frost by John Hanley @ Firestorm Fan
Mongul by John Hanley @ The Idol-Head of Diabolu
Chronos by John Van Fleet @ Power of the Atom
