The new face of Superman


Here's my latest Aussie MAD cover, with this one featuring the Man of Steel. The cover concept is based on an old US MAD issue from the 80's. The art director requested a more contemporary version with modern furniture, washboard abs and the current Superman outfit.

Great artwork - though, incidentally, the original was from the 1980s and was used for the cover of the issue that spoofed Superman III.
