Man of Steel: Superman saves Smallville by JPRart Man of Steel: Superman saves Smallville by JPRart
I'm thrilled to finally be able to post this! This is the cover that I drew for Man of Steel: Superman Saves Smallville. Its a children's book based on the upcoming movie, and it is probably the coolest project that I've ever worked on.

The book was written by the Amazingly talented John Sazaklis!!! [link] ...and illustrated by ME!!!!

You can check it out on Amazon [link] or your local bookstore when it hits shelves on April 30th

I really like the contrast between the their uniform/armor.

Zod has scalloped plates and looks really sharp, I like how he DOESN'T have spikes everywhere, since that's a sign of a villain who's campy (not necessarily bad, but not fitting the setting) or anime.  (Again, that's not a bad thing, but it doesn't match the setting.)

Superman, I like armor-like pieces on the wrists and waist.  They use their shape as a stark contrast to Zod's.  They "flow" over his uniform in graceful curves and are in places that actually serve a useful purpose BEYOND looking cool.  (gauntlets to protect the wrist, and the side-waist to protect the sides and kidney area.)

This is excellent.

Very cool! Wonderful job! I love it.  I will be looking for it. We collect the books, all of them. The children books and the comic books.  It looks so cool.

I would love to see this version of Superman traveling through time to see his various incarnations, including the "New 52" Superman.

I'm way late, but i think Bizarro might also be in the sequel, maybe with Lex.

I like Bizarro... but I'd rather have Superman's arch-nemesis.

Looking forward to this as well because you also did the interiors! Congrats on the gig.

I try to stay "spoiler-free" but I still collect these movie tie-in kiddie books when they come out.
