THE ART

In comicdom, John Byrne is a legendary artist. In the 1960s, his work on Silver Surfer is an all-time fan-favorite. Really, Byrne’s classical training is evident in his anatomical correctness and his realistic landscapes. When Byrne moved to DC in the 1990s, he did some important work on New Gods and here the crisis-preparing rumble between Superman and Black Adam.

Byrne’s pencils show a nice evolution from his classic work. Here, there is less emphasis on scenery and more on action. The detailed backgrounds are gone, and there are more close-ups and punches! Certainly, DC’s superheroes tend to be more hands-on. Importantly, Superman is first of all, a flying brick! Check out How To Draw Comics #1 by John Byrne, John Romita Jr and Allan Fromberg.

THE FIGHT

Superman confronts Black Adam in Metropolis over his protection of the villain Dr. Psycho. Dr. Psycho has Metropolis in a psychic hold.

The battle to decide who is the strongest warrior! #SaveMetropolis!
