Batman and Naruto Uzumaki are two iconic characters from both the comic and the manga, respectively, so it’s no wonder that one of the artists who is responsible for giving life to the adventures of the bat in DC Comics has been inspired by the Fourth Hokage to make an amazing illustration.
Artist Jorge Jiménez is a comic book inker and artist best known for his work with DC Comics on works such as Super Sons, Superman, Justice League and above all, Batman. The trajectory that the artist has had in Batman goes hand in hand with the writer James Tynion IV, who saw the birth of characters such as Punchline, Ghost-Maker, Clownhunter and Miracle Molly, culminating in events such as Joker War and Fear State.
And while Jimenez isn’t currently drawing Batman, he will return to the title with incoming writer Chip Zdarsky for Batman #125 in July, in a six-issue arc titled Failsafebut while this is happening, he has decided to share through his social networks an amazing fanart of what he considers one of his great inspirations: Naruto Uzumaki.
Sometimes I share this drawing I did when I finished reading the Naruto manga.. Naruto and I are in it, I know it’s a bit childish and crazy, but this series inspired me to dedicate myself to drawing without looking back, and that’s why I I’m a comic book artist today. #naruto pic.twitter.com/yYhUJOKwUm

Through twitter, Jorge Jiménez revealed that he was inspired to become a comic book artist due to the series Naruto. Reading the work created by Masashi Kishimoto inspired him to dedicate his life “to draw without looking back”, so he has submitted a fun and revealing sketch of himself alongside the blonde ninja from the Leaf Village.
Of course, the work has caught the attention of both manga and comic fans, who have given their approval to this peculiar illustration that shows us that the blond ninja has been in charge of inspiring a whole generation of artists around the world.
