    my variant cover to Superman Unchained #8 from sketch to final.

    Laying out this cover, i did what i almost never do with my Batman stuff. Usually, all comic covers, when laying it out, there’s more to consider than just what the your final art looks like ( the images you usually see online, before logo and all that text gets put on). Any good artist that’s done work to actually be published- knows that you have to consider where the book logo goes, the publisher trade logo, UPC code, creator name credits, and anything else that goes on the final production image went. Consider all those elements and how they’ll affect your art layout,  and making sure it all balances.

    this cover, i didn’t do any of that.. I was just excited to draw Superman flying into an unknown danger.

    And I had LOTS of fun.

    Bill Sienkiewicz 1985-1987: Selections from Who’s Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe

    Marvel’s 80s-era Handbooks really rocked my world. Mark Gruenwald, Eliot R. Brown and company really brought something wonderfully nerdtastic to the world of comics. And if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, DC must have though so too. While I have a distinct preference of Marvel’s Handbooks over DC’s Who’s Who, one area where DCs offerings surpassed the Handbooks is the treatment of the art for the characters. Every character go his or her own logo and the 1-color background art provided a great way to put the character in context.

    Shown above are all of Sienkiewicz’s contributions to the series and — appropriately enough — they are brimming with character.
