Hey! I want to say Merry Christmas to you! Thanks for all your time and support in 2010, and I hope this day, however you chose to celebrate it, is a positive and safe lead in to what will be a great 2011 for you and all those closest to you. Dan. (Now for your present...)
Splash pages, you gotta' love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit the reader with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week a festive Superman, by the always awesome Alex Ross.
A bit of a cheat in that this is a word free version of how the image appears in Superman: Peace On Earth - but I couldn't have any one other than the big 'S' on the Christmas Day post.
Christmas is Superman. It's a day where random strangers wish each other well, and when news bulletins are (shock horror) generally positive. Watch a Christopher Reeve Superman film if you find yourself still awake late at night, full of Christmas kai (food). Watch it and tell me if Superman and Christmas just doesn't feel right.
Believe me - on this of all days - there is just something in the air.
