Just finished working on a new print that I’ll have with me at cons this year. I’d been posting the process pics on Facebook, and a surprisingly low amount of people recognized that the image was a throwback, so I’ve included the reference image along with it here.
Hope you guys dig it!
Oh, and my convention schedule can be seen here!
EDIT: I removed the image of JL8 #15 and made it a link. I like showing the new illustration on its own.
When you need to stop an asteroid, you get Superman. When you need to solve a mystery, you call Batman. But when you need to end a war, you get Wonder Woman.
I was looking up old Wizard covers and remembered this article about an Ultimatized DC Universe. When The New 52 was announced, there were a lot of comments on how the new look seemed to be inspired by this article.
The designs were done by Draxhall Jump Entertainment’s Ken Lashley and Christian Zanier.
I remember and still have this issue of Wizard.
And yeah, The New 52 totally ripped off many of the elements from that article. Even that We Can Be Heroes poster was ripped off from that. Even a female Atom.
Ken Lashley was ahead of his time.
Take a moment and read this story; it’s awesome.
Superman’s hopped aboard the Express, of course.
The rest of us poor schmucks have to take the Local, which stops in Doubtburgh, Longdistancegirlfriendville, Experiment Flats, Closettown, Idunnomaybei’mbifield, and Fort Telltheparents.
(By the way: This panel, which has been making the internet rounds for years, is from the story “The Exploding Citizens” in Superman vol.1, #7 (Nov-Dec 1940).
All aboard the Supertrain to Gay City!
I honestly cannot apologize enough for this… thing.
I really like the coloring in this, how it’s atmospheric.
In honor of Man of Steel, all this weekend, buy anything from my Etsy store and get a free, original Superman sketch by me.
Tell your friends!
This man’s love of Superman makes me wish I liked it a third as much as he does. Seriously, go back through his stuff, he did a shirt a day I think from June 1 until he saw it late on Thursday.
I like his ‘toons and this is a cool deal.
