SDCC 2009: Superboy by Francis Manapul
Here's my last pieces from the con, from Francis Manapul (former artist on LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES and upcoming artist on ADVENTURE COMICS starring Superboy). I loved Manapul's LEGION, but he's taken his art one step further with a watercolor type style on ADVENTURE COMICS. It perfectly suits Smallville's placid surrounding, "sort of a Norman Rockwell feeling," as Francis described.
I got two pieces from Manapul. The first is a quick sketch at the DC booth (with Krypto!), and the second is a more elaborate piece he did at his booth in Artist's Alley.
This ADVENTURE COMICS is going to be one beautiful book... and psst, Titans fans, expect to see Cassie, Bart and Tim within the first 4 issues. OK, so this Superboy commission is my favorite piece of the entire con!
