Not too many people do the Superman costume from the One Billion series.

The Kryptonian suit at lower right does have a good pre-WW2 sci-fi vibe.

That's usually the one I get the most questions about. It's from "Superman: The Dark Side". [link]

Thank you very much! Though I'm not really a fan of Superman's "New 52" suit, I still plan to do anther piece similar to this one with nine more costumes. Maybe it will make the cut on that piece. :nod:

Aw, it's okay even though It's got it's problem, at least he's able to dress himself and look decent. Not having his undies on the outside etc.
I like your art though :)

Man, thanks for doing this... too bad I don't have the issue but I remember during the debate about Superman's "Electric" transformation, DC published a comic about different costumes Supes' has worn since his creation, pointing out "Supes' looks has changed, only not drastically (as the Electric version)" so this is a great way to educate his new fans, and oh yeah, great work too and I love the classic feel! :icongreatjobplz:

You're so welcome! Thank YOU so much for the kind words. I've always been more of a vintage Superman fan myself. Give me muted colors and a short cape on Supes and I'm happy. :thanks:

The suit at the bottom right was worn by Superman in "Superman: The Dark Side." Not sure if the suit has a name or not.
