Recently finished another sketchcover. This time the cover is Christopher Reeve from “Superman: The Movie”.

I’ve always loved this movie, and Christopher Reeve is my favorite Superman. I first saw the movie at an overnight skating party while I was in junior high school. I took a break from skating, grabbed something to eat from the snack bar, and took a seat in front of the projection screen as it started. I didn’t move for the next two hours or so. I had missed seeing it in the theater. I completely geeked when Superman first flies in the Fortress of Solitude. “You’ll believe a man can fly!” Yes, sir- I really did!

Like some of the previous ones I’ve posted here, I used color markers on a blank sketch cover comic.

I sketched it out in pencil first, then used Copic, Letraset, and Prismacolor markers, along with Micron pens, Primacolor pencils and Copic White.

…and here’s the back. I hate having the backs blank, so I like doing at least a toon on them. This is one of my Superkid style Superman sketches.

This Superman one is spoken for but I’ll have other sketchcovers at the Memphis Comic Expo next month- June 6 & 7 at the Agricenter.
