Dumb question - where is this actually mentioned on

http://www.nealadams.com

I looked there and saw nothing about All-Star Superman.
Perhaps DC had him take it down?

I'd like to see this cover.
Neal's covers during the Bronze Age were wonderful.

Ok, so I saw the cover and I must say that Frank Quitely's cover is better, IMHO.

But, judge for yourself:

Hmm, that background looks familiar somehow...

Frank Quitely's cover is way better.

Neal's best days are way behind him, sadly.  He seems to be trying to ape Jim Lee, which seems ironic somehow.

Of course Neal can be "influenced" like any other artist.  As a kid I always thought his style sprang full-blown from his brow, like magic, but looking back I can see it was pretty much lifted halfway from Stan Drake and half from Joe Kubert.  But I'd have thought by now he'd built enough of a following that he could stick with his style and not worry about competing with the flavor of the month.

Oh, and though I don't have it in front of me right now, this image seems awfully reminiscent of the panel in "Superman vs Muhammad Ali" where Supes is shot in the back by a photon torpedo (or whatever).  Which fits with Neal's other weakness: tracing his old stuff and passing it off as new.

Certainly very little here to justify paying extra money to the dealers and "scalpers" who will no doubt horde them.
