Did Romita Jr. give Superman a rectangle belt buckle or did he forget to add in the oval belt buckle for Action Comics #1022? It just doesn’t look right.

He’s not good at organic shapes, prefers straight lines

Scratchy lines made even more so by Jansons inks. I have no idea why DC thinks their style is a good fit for Superman. But then again I never understood why Marvel thought he was a good fit for Thor.
