SUPERMAN by Francesco Francavilla

(click on the above image for the BIG REVEAL)

Great choice, M!tch! :)
I was planning to do something more "action" oriented like the one below I did a few years back, but gotta work on those monthly funnybooks, you know? So 30 minutes was all I had and went with the above minimalist take.
Hope you guys dig it nevertheless :)

At first I thought it was just a shift in perspective to remind us of the big feat that Superman's flight is, but then I said to myself "Its a bird, its a plane..." and then I finally got it.

One for the win. This would be an amazing comic cover.

Composition and placement of blacks is great in that second one. First one very witty

Thank you so much, everyone, I am so glad you all enjoyed it so much, especially considering I was almost skipping the week. I am happy I didn't now :)

Cheers to you all.
