Steely Man by Laemeur Steely Man by Laemeur
Every once in a while I draw a Superman.  Superman's tough, because unlike most other superheroes, I have a relatively fixed idea of what I think he's supposed to look like.  Joe Shuster, Curt Swan, and Neal Adams are, for me at least, the go-to artists when trying to get the look of 'im -- Swan in particular.  Silver-Age Superman is Superman, and all from the Byrne reboot onward are impostors.

I dunno. For me, my favourite Superman will always be Jack Kirby:fuckyeahkirby.tumblr.com/post/…. I mean Curt Swan's okay, but I always thought his art was just to sterile for me. Golden age superman is badass too, if a bit destructive.

I really like Kirby's Superman, too, actually.  I love Swan's work, though, and he's the master of the character in my mind.  A lot of people say he's dry, stiff, sterile, etc, but I think he's got this really great workmanlike solidity in his cartooning.

DANG. That is sweet. I feel like you should make an addendum for All Star, though.
