Superman @ 75: My Sketches (Part One)

Anytime I get new sketches at comic shows or conventions, my first move is to scan them, followed by uploading them onto my ComicArtFans and Flickr accounts. Then I e-mail Andy Khouri over at Comics Alliance and submit the cream of my crop for CA's weekly feature, Best Art Ever (This Week). A few days ago, I sent over a few neat sketches I got at New York Comic Book Marketplace last Saturday. Imagine my surprise when this week's installment was all about Superman. The occasion: The Man of Steel's 75th anniversary.

I've been getting sketches on a regular basis since 2000. According to my CAF page, I've collected almost 600 sketches. I like to think that I'm not obsessive . . . though I did spend the past five weekends at comic shows of various sizes in the New York/New Jersey area. I could go for six tomorrow, but I figure that I need a break. Right now, I'd like to show off my Superman-themed sketches, starting with those from the first three books I had. Enjoy!
