I love the artwork. It’s so detailed and very vibrant. I especially like the first image. It’s very powerful.

The image of Lois revealing Clark as superman kind of reminds me of an image for an add for 90’s Superman show Lois and Clark where Terry Hatcher reveals Dean Cain as Superman. These images are so iconic and well made. I’m impressed.
