I just found a great blog, The Chronological Superman on tumblr. It describes itself as “Chronicling every appearance of Superman- from comic to newspaper, cartoon to film, and more – in the order it happened.” It’s very interesting! It talks about all the appearances of Superman (duh) which is pretty cool and a great way to waste your day away :)
On a totally unrelated note, my BF and I recently had a disagreement on who would make a better husband: Superman or Batman. I say Superman with all his honest-loyal-brave-and true boyscout-ness would make a fantastic husband. He says Batman is better.
Batman has issues, honey.
Besides, what does a guy know about what makes good husband anyway? Just be quite and put the cape on, dear ;)
My future brother-in-law (aka, the guy my sister is marrying in July) is pleasingly geeky in his own way. He’s a big fan of Batman, TMNT and video games (though his preference for xbox goes against my preference for Nintendo). He recently had his 26th birthday, and so I doodled this up for him:
It was only after I was cleaning it in gimp did I realize a few things:
1. I forgot to draw in the bat symbol on his chest
2. I forgot to give him a cape
3. What is supposed to be Batgirl’s hair looks like an out of place cape
So, I’ll probably go back and fix it a bit, but as I realized these things I was already nearly done with it in gimp so finished it up anyway, lol. This is really the first superhero character I’ve drawn (well, I did end up drawing superheroes in crayons with kids at a church event not too long ago but that wasn’t exactly art) and as Batman is one of my favorite superheroes, I want to make it look good! Also I should mention now that while I think I’ve seen every single DC superhero TV show made, I haven’t actually read any of the comics…I might one day, but there are just so many, I would have no idea where to start @_@ I love the DC characters though, Wonder Woman is the best ;)
