SUPERMAN Sketch Variant

This week I spent a few days working this blank sketch variant cover of an issue of Superman Unchained!  I hope you guys are enjoying these covers as much as I am.  I've purchased twenty in all and the Kryptonian alien himself makes 8 down.  As I told an old friend this week, each one is like living out a childhood dream- too cool!

An issue of Superman was actually the first comic book which ever came into my possession as a child.  I got into comics at about age 11 when Superman had just been killed off and subsequently came back a year or so later to the world of DC Comics.  As an introduction to relaunching each Superman line, there was a different "Superman" helming each of the four titles.  Who was the real Superman?  I love a mystery and I was hooked! Of course none of them were and then the real Supes came back with a mullet which is pretty much where they lost me.  Plus, Superman is a cheater.... comic geek debate in the comments below?

Here are some process pictures of how my Visionary Superman came to be courtesy of the DREGstudios! Instagram...
