I have read this comic, and it is great. Go forth and find out for yourselves, folks.
THE WAIT IS OVER!
Part one of my three-part Adventures of Superman is up with Ming Doyle drawing Old Man Kamandi and Brent Schoonover drawing 1938 Superman in today’s release of #46. This is all linked right to it so give it a download.
Here’s DC’s official description:
"Strange Visitor" part 1 of 3. As citizens of Earth flee to the stars, Kamandi tells the story of Superman’s earliest defeat—one that continued to haunt him for years. Don’t miss this epic 3-part adventure spanning the entirety of Superman’s lifetime!
See, Robin, ol’ chum? Dale Arden did it first.
Before I knew it, good buddy and fellow member of the collective formerly known as Comic Twart Nathan Fairbairn colored that Jonah Hex sketch. And I LOVE IT.
Loose Jonah Hex sketch between work.
cloisismyfairytale asked: Hi Doc (hope it's okay I'm calling you that). I realllllllly loved your Adv of Supes run. The art is really what I like. I was wondering could I request a Lois and Supes romantic pic from you? I know you must be super busy, but if you could I'd love it and be forever grateful. (I'm sorta left wanting after that panel in Adv of Superman. Supes needed a hug so badly). If not, I totally understand. :)
Totally okay, and thank you! I’m not saying I won’t draw Lois and Superman, but (kind as yours was) I don’t take requests anymore. Again, not saying that won’t come up in a sketch some day if the spirit moves me.
New favorite Flash Gordon character.
Speaking of good Superman stuff DC’s putting out, I’m really enjoying Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder’s run on Action Comics so far. It’s a great read and I’m so glad Lana Lang’s getting a place to shine. I’ve been using this to warm-up over the last couple of weeks. Anyhow, if you’re wanting some quality Superman go give the last few issues of Action Comics a look!
Anonymous asked: I know the way Superman is treated is upsetting. It doesn't really look as if he'll bounce back to the guy we've learned to love with our minds and hearts because he's constantly being grounded in violence, destruction, death, fickle virtues, evil, ineffectiveness and sadness. But even if DC completely dilutes the meaning the original character is constantly trying to portray he'll never be completely wiped away. Thank you for keeping Superman, the real one, alive for just a bit longer.
Well, thanks, anonymous friend. I certainly appreciate the sentiment though I still think you can find some good Superman stuff being published by DC. And it’s not like the older stuff ever really goes away. Regardless, thanks for reading and thanks for the kind words.
