Monday MADness: Man of Steel Cover!

June 29th, 2015 | Posted in Monday MADness

This is the closest I’ve gotten to doing an actual MAD cover… the cover of a special Superman issue from 2013. Here are the roughs and some close ups of the city painting that took forever.

    Insane. As in insanely detailed and fabulous. You missed your calling (yeah, right) — you could have gone into city planning…

  2. Elizabeth W. Pankey says:

    It is an honor to know you and see your amazing work on Facebook.

  3. Bill says:

    I would have placed some clouds in the air, to mask most of the buildings…but, I’m just a Monday morning quarterback….

  4. Jack Myhervold says:

    Turned out really nice. Maybe you will draw Cavill again if the Man from Uncle is good enough to merit a parody. I wish Mad would allow more of a variety of artistic perspectives on their covers again. I don’t want to see ANY one artist every single issue forever. Is their a site or some feature on photoshop that gives you that particular texture on Superman’s outfit?.
