Wilfredo Torres Shares “Superman ’78” Drawings

Over the past few days artist Wilfredo Torres has shared a number of drawings for “Superman ’78” via his Twitter account.

The images are mostly of scenes from “Superman: The Movie” and Richard Donner’s “Superman II,” with a Bizarro image also amongst the pre-lim drawings.

Writer Rob Venditti and Wilfredo Torres will collaborate on “Superman ’78” to tell stories set within the world Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve created in “Superman: The Movie”. In “Superman ’78”, bystanders are surprised and delighted by Superman’s abilities, and Lois Lane doesn’t (yet!) know that Clark Kent is secretly Superman. The sheer thrill of seeing a man fly, leap, or stop a bullet will be reflected in this environment where Superman has just been introduced! Inspired by Donner’s classic, timeless style of superhero storytelling, in “Superman ’78” Venditti and Torres will show fans that a man can truly fly.

“Superman ’78” will debut with six digital chapters on July 27, followed by new chapters for the six weeks that immediately follow. The twelve chapters will also publish as six printed comics between August and October and as a hardcover collection in November.

I was disappointed it wasn’t Gary Frank, but after seeing these, I can definitely get behind it.

Wow! A Christopher Reeve Bizarro!
I can’t wait to see where they’re going with this story! 😀

As far as I’m concerned, DC should make this a monthly on-going. If some readers feel that the other books aren’t doing anything for them, maybe this title could be enough to give ’em their Superman fix.

I always dreamed about this project. Now to see it come true and with this art, I feel really disappointed. If these comics are a short series, why not hire Alex Ross or Gary Frank to do the artwork? DC knows that they’re going to sell this for sure. Meh! We all know Alex Ross it’s going to make alternate covers for these series, and that’s a plus.
