DC Collectibles DC Comics Icons: Superman Statue
Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios! Now the Man of Steel can stand watch in your own home with this stunning statue that perfectly captures his DC Comics -The New 52 look. Limited edition of 5,200. Measures approximately 11" tall.
I try to. I talked with James Robinson and Greg Rucka, but the hard part is that I'm trying to get covers done in time for a solicitation while sometimes the stories aren't quite finished yet. So I have a rough idea of what's going on, but it's basically a process of me getting information on the main characters of the book and trying to figure out what the setting might be. I just finished one that's Steel fighting Atlas, but I have to leave the background somewhat ambiguous because I'm not sure in the story where they're going to be. I try to just make things very natural and organic.
With "Action Comics," you're drawing the Nightwing and Flamebird characters, who have new costumes whose finer points were not established when you began your work on the covers. What's the learning curve like on depicting a new character for a cover?
Sadly, things are moving so fast that the character designs I got for the new costumes were very sparse. They were only shown from the front. So I'm constantly trying to get sequential pages for research, and that's been very challenging. I was hoping they'd let me design the costumes myself, but that wasn't in the cards. [laughs] I did get to design a couple of villains from Krypton that are on some covers coming up.
