Sometimes, ranting about tracers or artists who have no sense of anatomy isn't enough.

Sometimes I just want to post silly stuff on the interwebs.

I post all kinds of things that I find weird and funny. You have been warned. Sorta.

 

What if Rob Liefeld had drawn Superman?
Okay, that’s a joke. Rob Liefeld did not draw this. This is from Superman: The Man of Steel #33 (May 1994), written by Louise Simonson, with pencils by Jon Bogdanove and inks by Dennis Janke. Basically, Superman is absorbing energy in an uncontrolled fashion, so is body is all distorted like that. He looks like Prime at the beginning of the issue, but by the end he’s so freakishly huge he looks like something out of Rob Liefeld’s earliest works.
Everyone else has regular, normal proportions, except for him. (And Guardian, in one panel.) I think Simonson and Bogdanove were poking fun at 90’s artwork. And Janke’s inking is pretty good, it makes things stand out without excessive use of crosshatching.
The story isn’t bad, but I didn’t read Superman during this era.

"Superhéroes", a Coke ad featuring kids dressed as Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman, and Superman.

The text reads:

"We were all heroes once. Remember what that was like? To feel powerful. Fearless. A good guy. Where did that costume end up? Because it’s time to put it back on. Let’s play again, the world needs us."

Okay, so maybe the text is kinda silly. But Robin and Batgirl on a toy Batmobile, that’s pretty damn cute.
