Adventure Comics 1 pg 1 by manapul Adventure Comics 1 pg 1 by manapul
hey folks here's a preview of the first few pages from Adventure Comics. I drew these last year before I started Superman Batman and I actually drew them as "test pages" with the ink wash style. Hence the brush and pen work with inks rather than brush which I've fully converted to now. The neat thing about it is that Geoff loved the pages enough to write it into the story as is! So now this is the opening sequence to the book! How much more could I love Geoff for doing this? NOT enough! It was very indicative of how collaborative a writer he is with his artist's so I'm really pumped to be COLLABORATING with him! Anyways more info and the colored versions can be found here [link]

Your style is superb! You really capture the feel of the Smallville Superman world. Definitely one of the best interpretations I've seen of superman younger. Excellent, job!

(By the way, ink and brush really make a difference. I always found it more pleasing to the eye to use that technique rather than the brush alone. Once again, excellent work!)

I cannot express how much I love these pages. It's great to see such a casual moment in Kon's life. Additionally, I love how you draw him and Martha.

Awesome work. I've been looking forward to Adventure Comics since I first heard about it. When I found out you were going to be the artist, it only made my anticipation even greater.

I would've been going HOLY SH!T over this if I hadn't already read Legion of 3 Worlds #4. Now I'm still going holy sh!t over that ending. This is gonna suck for Tim and Cassie though. They just got ever Conner and now he's back. It's like one of those things on TV when you finish cleaning a house and then a school bus plows through the living room.

Nice job. On this and the Legion. Srry it had to end before all those plot threads could finish.

It's work like this that gives me hope for the genre. This is a very emotional piece of art. You've earned a coveted, Bravo Zulu with this one.
