From the Man Without Fear to the Man of Tomorrow. Marvel Comics' Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada shared a sketch of DC Comics' Superman before attending Fan Expo Dallas this weekend.
The former Marvel Editor-in-Chief posted the close-up sketch of the Man of Steel yesterday, complete with the hero's signature hair curl and determined gaze. Quesada joked that drawing the iconic DC hero made him "feel a bit dirty" but added that it is "fun to do the occasional off the beaten path sketch." Take a minute to appreciate the sketch.
While it always makes me feel a bit dirty, it's fun to do the occasional off the beaten path sketch. Who's coming to Fan Expo Dallas this weekend? pic.twitter.com/MnBUeQCKs5— JoeQuesada (@JoeQuesada) April 5, 2018
While Quesada is known for his work with Marvel (he was the publisher's Editor-in-Chief from 2000 until 2011), he started his comics career at Valiant Entertainment, and even co-created DC's Jean-Paul Valley, otherwise known as the vigilante Azrael, with Dennis O'Neal in 1992. Jean-Paul Valley went on to play an important -- and violent -- role in Batman's classic Knightfall arc, briefly taking up the mantle of Batman after the Dark Knight was taken out of commission by Bane.
Quesada will be at Fan Expo Dallas on Saturday for a signing and a Q&A panel. You can find more information about his appearance at the event here.
