From the vaults. Supergirl #45

The Hunt for Reactron, a balls to the wall chase as Supergirl, Nightwing (Lor-Zod/ Chris Kent) and Flamebird (Thara Ak Var). My issue was actually part 2 of the story, in which the three were framed for the destruction on the Metropolis sewer system and the "murder" of Mon- El, who had actually been captured by General Lane and Project 7734.

We opened the issue with a "O'Reilly Factor" Style show hosted by Morgan Edge, long time Superman supporting character. I tried to make it as psuedo patriotic as possible.

This spread took my 2 and a half days to pencil. The hardest part was getting all of the reference for the scene. luckily I've spent a lot of time in Paris, France over the years so I was very familiar with La Tour Eiffel.

I love the energy of this scene. I was trying to Make Chris as handsome as possible.

Again being familiar with paris, it was important that I get that feeling of being there  across.
