Superman Vs The Elite Cover
I'm now saddened I won't be attending Wondercon March 16-18, which will be premiering the animated film based on a treasured comic story. It's one of my favorite Superman stories where Superman must confront a new generation of "heroes" who don't care about killing or what means they use to get the job done. It has Superman taking on four super powered beings that can really hurt him, with no backup. No Justice League interference, no little help from Jimmy Olsen finding their weakness at the last moment, it becomes a brutal fight at one point and it even has the man of steel questioning himself based on public opinion.
This cover disgusts me on how awful it looks, where the Hell is Superman's other hand? It just lacks any competence. The greatest problem is it doesn't even match the art style from the film. Look how Superman's designed below then look at the cover. He looks kind of chubby and big chinned. Which I have problems with, because there not following the style that was in the comic, but that's another issue.It's also kind of looks like Superman's fat on the cover ... it's just awful.
BTW what happened to DC Shorts with these things did they give up on that or what?
