i knew there was nothing to worry about. even with all the bravado, he still knows what matters most.
“If anyone in the world’s been bullied, then Superman exists to take out the bully, no matter how big or smart or armed that bully might be,”
“A lot of people were losing their jobs and losing their livelihood [in the 1930s], and a lot of people were realizing there was corruption in high places,” Morrison said. “I think we’re at that time again.”
“Superman is just a guy who is very young at this point, and he has big ideas about what is right and wrong, and he has the power to implement those ideas.”
Superman doesn’t have the elderly Kents urging him to make nice with the world.
“It means that he can maybe go a little too far. To a certain extent, he enjoys being on his own because no one can get hurt and it’s all down to him. But at the same time, that means there’s no limit on him as he loses his temper.”
“So what we’re trying to do is bring back that proactive Superman, but also allow him to change and to make these mistakes and to get beaten up a bit, and to have to come back and rethink his mission,”
“I wanted to see him sweat a little and to bleed a little, and to restore him to a kind of humanity that we could all understand before moving him on.”
Here I have drawn SUPERMAN as he appears in “Action Comics” since DC Comics started their New 52 initiative/experiment/whatever.
It was then colored by the super-talented, Joe Hunter!
This dude is my favorite dude of all time, and I have drawn him here with a smirk on his face as he prepares to leap headfirst back into action against some unseen evil-doer!
The original art for this looks like this…
…and if you’d like to buy it, you can do so here at my new Etsy store!
And remember, like Ken says:
“To like is kind. To share is divine. Thanks for your support, folks. It is appreciated.”
Here I have drawn SUPERMAN!
Or, you know, as a very young Superman (but not Superboy, since that’s a different dude) as he appears in ACTION COMICS since the whole New 52 thing.
He looks like he’s about to go take care of whatever bad guys are shooting at him.
Like I said, this was drawn by me and then colored by the supremely-talented, Joe Hunter.
I included the photos of the original art to show you what it looks like and to let you know that it is for sale in my Etsy store!
Perhaps you’d like it for yourself, or perhaps you have a friend that might enjoy it as some kind of holiday gift!
Drawing things is how I make my living, so, if you’d like to buy it that would be awesome, but if you can’t afford it but still want to help me out, your reblogs are VERY appreciated!
I declared that the series “looks to be the heart and soul of the relaunched DCU.”
I was wrong. And that was soon obvious to most readers who picked up the first couple of issues of “Action Comics.” It wasn’t something people needed to buy or read or even look in the direction of. And it certainly wasn’t the “heart and soul of the relaunched DCU.”
It was a flawed sidebar, at best. A lumpy, sometimes unattractive piece of furniture that was off to the side of the DCU. I don’t know what ended up becoming the true heart and soul of the New 52, maybe nothing (and maybe that’s a larger problem), but it certainly wasn’t “Action Comics.””
