The Brainiac-Luthor Team

This is the finished art of a commission for Royce. He had given me a list of Superman family characters for me to chose from to do a commission piece. When I saw Luthor (in prison grays) and the silver age Brainiac on the list, I suggested pairing them up in a re-imagined image of the cover to Superman #167. He liked the idea and we were off. This was really more fun to do than I can express. I did my best to channel the late, great Curt Swan. Thanks again Royce!

This is ink on 11" x 17" Strathmore Bristol Board.

This is Post #756

Great job Gene! Lots of silver-age goodness :)

Curt himself would be proud Gene. Awesome likenesses and that Braniac is a perfect "Swan" Dive.

Thanks Brian!

Thanks Royce. I'm glad you like it.

Thanks Gary!

That one was so much fun, I might have to do another reinvisioned cover image. :)
