Swan must have drawn some....?

Anyone here deal with the comics.org folks?  It might be worthwhile to broaden the searching possiblities so one could search by cover credits, or see if we could get a data dump? 

BTW, http://www.comicbookradioshow.com/swancover.html is a great read.

Now that I think of it, he DID draw the covers for the final 2-parter, "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?", of course. But those were kind of an exception, being as much a "Swan song" for Swan's particular style of art as they were for a particular style of Superman...

Curt Swan hardly EVER drew covers after Mort Weisinger retired as editor of the Superman titles .... in fact, I can't think offhand of a SINGLE one he drew.

Swan did do quite a few after Weisinger.  Just in the Superman title itself, he did 239, 244, 245, 246, 247, 289, 304, and 314 (signed), plus the one you noted.  But he certainly was not the regular cover artist.

I think the current superman comic needs an old fashioned Clark Kent/Superman split again. (where superman and clark become two seperate people and can meet, like the time he fought atomic skull or like when he fought the venturians both in DC comics presents)

I agree; I always like those stories for some reason.

I think it could clear up the differences between Supes and Clark and also show why its needed.

My story idea. a race of intergalactic robotic psychartrist come to earth and seperate Superman from Clark Kent (for some reason). that seems like a fairly fleshed out idea Tongue

Are there people that would think that the art on the "Man of Steel" cover is better?  Its not good, the right forearm on Clark does not follow the anatomy of how the radius/ulna and muscles work, and the wrinkles on the suit should actually be "V"s directed upward toward the left hand  holding it at the highest point rather than downward.

Sorry to be off topic... Cool

I do not belive I have met a more picky person!

I usually only point that stuff out because I have no belief that many modern artists actually can draw as well as many of their forebearers. Grin
