Steve asked me to give a brief background story for my reason for creating this serial...
To begin with, from early childhood I've always been a Superman fan, I've always had a creative bent, and a meager artistic talent.
Without going into details, my wife and I have suffered under some tragic and distressing experiences this past year. I needed something to take my mind from these things. In high school I used to make my own humorous comics to entertain my friends with.
However I wouldn't be able to pursue that vein under my circumstances.
I always had a childhood dream of penciling a Superman comicbook. And with that thought I felt the creative juices flowing and knew I found something I could escape into.
The result is this serial adventure with Superman and Batman.
I apologize for the artwork, it's been a long time since I did any drawing with a computer mouse and I had to improve as the story advanced. Personally I hope you overlook that and get caught up in the storyline. I did my best to keep you from being able to second guess it.
My daughter has been enthusiastic about it, and suggested I send an installment to Steve... The result is a surprise to me, but here it is. Hope you enjoy it.
