The elder Romita does his best and delivers a fine piece of art for this Superman #34 variant, but that is still an ugly, stupid costume.
The Hollywood Reporter debuted John Romita Sr.'s variant cover for Superman #34, the first time the iconic artist has drawn Superman for an official comic book cover ever, and his first work for DC in 50 years. It's always great to see Romita's artwork, but we wish it didn't have to be ruined by Jim Lee's horrendous red-shorts-less, high-collared, unnecessarily-armor-lined costume redesign. He's fucking Superman! Why does he need armor?! Why does he need a fucking turtleneck?! In any case, check it out:
John Romita Jr. drew the regular cover, which features his trademark blocky fingers, distorted faces, and borderline Liefeldesque grasp of anatomy. Are we sure these two are really related?
Superman #34, by Geoff Johns and Romita Jr. will be in comic shops on August 27th.
