Color guide for the cover to Superman#40

Superman#40 cover color guide on EBAY here

Here's another color guide, done for the mechanical color separation process in comics, prior to computer coloring.This is a favorite cover of mine, as it's always fun to draw Kirby creations, like the four armed terror!

This is fantastic, Jerry! Love the text turning the corner on that slab of wall!

These are great! I loved it when covers were like that. I always liked the dialog on the covers too. Those were the days when the heroes were good guys!

Another great piece! I remember this issue--this era is probably my favourite in all of comics!

Thanks all. I really hope that DC will collect the Superman stuff from when I started writing as well as drawing the book, as I believe it's my strongest Superman work. I always look at that era, and wonder why I can't draw as well now! I suspect that writing the stuff made me more invested in the stories, as opposed to now, where I am only an art-monkey:)
