Hiya. That’s an exact comic quilt drawn via legendary comic artist Frank Miller. It’s the quilt to a associate comic to Miller’s upcoming Darkish Knight III: The Seize Race sequence, and it appears DC is actually going to place up it although 1) it is horrible, 2) it is laughable and three) that you may naturally see the outline of Superman’s junk in his crimson briefs.
I’m primarily speechless that that’s going down. The one issue I can bring to mind is that DC is so decided for additonal Darkish Knight Returns money that no longer least difficult have they offered Frank Miller once more, alternatively been compelled to accede to his naturally dangerous requires, corresponding to naming the 1/three installment “The Master Race.” Given the horrible art of The Dark Knight Strikes Again, it made sense that DC would agree to a problematic title as long as Miller brought on board some decent collaborators. Which is presumably why Brian Azzarello is co-writing and Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson are taking the actual art duties, for the upcoming series.
But I guess Miller also demanded to be allowed draw something for his effort, and DC was forced to allow him to draw this cover to a Superman and Atom DK3 tie-in. And I have to assume they promised Miller they wouldn’t change it, because as much as I give DC crap for being obtuse, I can’t believe anyone in the DC Comics office right is looking at Superman’s face, his body dysmorphia and most especially the outline of his dick, and not praying they had the power to prevent it. And then to delete it and smash all the computers that had ever hosted the image with hammers.
Correction: An earlier version of this article said Brian Azzarello was the artist on The Master Race. He’s actually the co-writer.
