Super Friends #24

November 24, 2009: J. Bone "Super Friends" Interview

Artist J. Bone spoke with ComicBookResources.com about his work on the "Super Friends" comic book aimed at younger readers. Here's a portion of the interview...

    Which Super Friend is the most difficult to draw?

    Truly the most difficult to draw is Superman. The very first interior story I drew for the book was #9, the Superman birthday issue. He's so darned iconic that it's hard to imagine him being anything but a stoic hero, and yet he should look as though he's really enjoying himself. Fortunately, because the book is kid-friendly, I've got a bit of freedom/leeway with the character. I tried to imagine him as Christopher Reeve in the first two Superman movies. Even though he's never in his secret identity, I gave him the Kansas farm boy blushing, "aw shucks," attitude that made him so real in those 1980s' films.
