Meta-Messages: A Touching Legion Tribute to a Superman Art Legend


Swan gets labelled as stiff by later generations ; but, the man could draw anything and tell a heck of a story. He also rarely got to work with inkers who could do him justice, like Murphy Anderson. When you got them together as the Swanderson team, it was magic. One of the reasons I knew that the Christopher Reeve movie was going to work, when I was a kid, was that Reeve looked like Swan’s Superman come to life. To me, that is what is missing from both the modern comic and movie Superman; that juxtaposition of everyman and godlike being. Swan captured that wonderfully.
