ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Drew Friedman says:
I just wanted to share my latest portrait of Jerome Siegel and Joseph Shuster, the creators of Superman. This is the latest in the series of portraits I'm creating of "Legends of the Comics."

That’s fascinating, not only for the heroic poses and high level of detail, but also because I think it’s the first time I’ve seen Friedman do a straight-up portrait rather than a caricature; I’m so used to seeing him do unflattering caricatures (he has a particular talent for zeroing in on his subjects’ least flattering characteristic and bumping it up just a bit) that this is quite startling in its reverence.
