(Superman is) a hugely important global icon, with good reason, and while it always sounds like a kick to work on a Superman book, there's a humbling gut-fear that grabs me when I actually have to put pencil to paper. And looking back on my contribution, I'm happy with a very small part of what I've done with him (which hasn't been much, to date) because only a fraction of it feels like Superman to me. And that's the meat of it, really. You can draw a guy in the suit with an S-curl, but if it doesn't feel like him, it isn't him, you know? And the same holds true for the writing. I think if everyone approached their work on this character with the same respect for the mythology we'd see something really special.
