I teamed up with Comic Book Guys to produce a Superman print for ‘Free Comic Book Day’ (5th May). The print will be exclusive to them and will become available in-store on FCBD.

We chose Superman as the subject due to Action Comics (first appearance of Superman) celebrating its 1000th issue this week – which makes Superman 80 years old!! I deliberately gave Superman a menacing look – much more fun to illustrate than a happy, smiling, Man of Steel. I placed him on top of the Comic Book Guys store, in the middle of a storm. Well, it is Belfast after all, and it’s always raining here…

I’ve attached a rough scamp, work in progress shots and the final artwork.
