He's so Bitchin'



Had the opportunity to work through my backlog of unread comics recently, and one of 'em featured Superboy. And JESUS, is his costume the worst example of character design in the entire history of pictorial fiction. It's a sad, sad day when the 90s incarnation of a character has better design aesthetics than the current version.

So here's the raddest Krypto-Klone that ever lived. He's a total Baldwin.

Wreckers #3 is out this week, ladies. Buy the balls off it, and download issues #1 and #2 via iTunes. Believe me when I say that this story is 'nigh-accessible'.

Hilariously around the time superboy was sportin' this look, I had the exact same shaved at the sides, long at the fringe haircut.
Really like the vibrancy and energy of this Nick, I think you'd probably find it nearly impossible to draw somebody simply standing still.

C'mon Jay: Even YOU know that 'costume' sucks!

Mooney, I too rocked a 90s undercut. And good point about drawing a static someone. I should try it...

Mike Ex: Tactile Telekinesis! Well-remembered! That concept blew my 13-year-old mind!

Cheerio!
