"Golden Age Statue Sketch"
Size: 8.5" x 11"
Medium: Pen and Marker on Paper
Artist: Tom Key
I did this sketch as a companion to the Kingdom Come statue sketch shown next to this one on the Art Gallery page.
My intention when I get around to doing the KC statue, is to convert it into this "Golden Age" version. However, this is an even earlier version than anyone else has ever done of Superman. It's actually taken from both the cover to Action Comics #1 1938, and a drawing done by Joe Shuster a few years before that. His "S" shield is more like a crest and his boots have straps on them.
I think this would be a VERY cool version to do.
