Superman cover debut! by cheeks-74 Superman cover debut! by cheeks-74
  Instagram   Facebook | Twitter | Table Taffy Studios Group | Tumblr  



I was very honored to do a Superman cover for my Adventures of Superman debut.  Thought you might get a kick out of the 3 variations I turned in for the cover as well.
The book hits stands digitally Nov 11 and Nov 18 and will later be in print form. 

When tackling this book, there were some characteristics I wanted to pull from the old school George Reeves and Christopher Reeves versions.  For me George had an awesome shape to his body as well as his costuming for the Man of Steel and Christopher nailed the personalities of both alter egos IMHO.  :)


Hope y'all digs!

It's always nice to see a sample of the "innocent and wacky" approach to the depiction of Superman. Super-hero imagery seems a bit too obsessed with "dark and brooding" nowadays. Well done!

Love it.  A nice twist on Glen Murakimi's designs for Warner Bros...  and Ditto on Christopher and George.  I have a feeling we'll never get a better IRL Supes than Mr Reeves gave us  (will even admit I teared up a little when they had him on Smallville and played Johnny William's Kryptonian theme under his dialogue)

Nice work! Couldn't agree more with your opinions on George and Christopher Reeves. Both created classic depictions of Superman that were spot on. Also, IMHO.
