I’m going to go broke if these covers don’t stop

Looks so much better when artists don’t draw the trunks going above the top of the belt. Wish Dan could be drawing Superman regularly.

Still don’t know about having those cuffs on the classic suit though.

Yes, they just seem out of place. The best part of the classic suit is its simplicity. Once you give it too much detail it doesn’t look that great.

Would have preferred if it was someone other than Kevin Nowlan inking over Jurgens.

Agreed. He’s a bit better at inking Garcia Lopez but I cant say I’m a fan of Nolan’s style.

I didn’t like his inks in Superman vs Aliens because it changed too much Jurgen’s style, in fact I hated them. But in later collaborations he’s done an awesome job. And when he is both at the pencils and inks you can clearly see he would be one of Superman’s greatest artists.
I think he’s learnt through the years that it is good to have a style but it shouldn’t overlap the penciler’s art to the point it is unrecognizable. Once he learnt it his work became great.

It is amazing how well he mimics Joe Shuster and John Byrne’s style. Well, not really amazing when you know how much talent is in Jurgen’s hands plus all the decades he’s been in Superman’s life.
I mean, it is amazing to see Superman fly, but when you’ve seen him fly 100 times, it becomes the common yardstick. Then you see other extremely talented artists like Patrick Zircher and you think “good but that’s not Jurgens (or Alex Ross)”.

I wonder if there is a chance to get Jurgen’s cover in the rest of the world (imported). I would definately love to get it in Spain because it is one of the few comics that I want in its original edition. The other 2 are The Death of Superman compilation and Kingdom Come.
