From the vaults. Supergirl #44

Supergirl #44 was part of the Codename: Patriot crossover. As with most crossovers, you work with multiple artists and multiple headaches involved.

This fight sequence was a bit daunting, because of the the confined space and the fact that I had , with the exception of General lane, never drawn any of these characters before. I also didn't have clear reference as well so my characters were a bit off model versus the artist who drew the issues before and after.

As I usually try to do is incorporate as much real backgrounds into my work as possible from Las Vegas

To Downtown Los Angeles

And the Hollywood hills and the Grifith Park observatory.

I love this spread, Although some of my critics said that my Superman was too stiff. Nei once again did an amazing job.
