Happy Birthday, Superman!

Superman first appeared in Action Comics June 1938. I drew this for my Super Friends editor just for kicks. I really dig working on that book and drawing DC's big six in that cutesy, bulky action figure based way. This also the second birthday image I've drawn with a splatted cake.

I love the DC Super Friends figures. I buy them all for my nephew. I wish they would hurry up and make a Wonder Woman for the line already.

Aaaahhh!!! That's the best thing I have ever seen!

Flash and GL don't even know how badly they are about to get their asses kicked! The others know better than to laugh. Although Aquaman looks like he's struggling.

HA! Great picture, man!
And I agree that the best is Superman's look, he's mortified!
Best,

And, given that she's a favourite of yours to draw, it's worth noting that Wonder Woman looks particularly good on this pic (love her expression here)...

although, yeas, Superman's "whoops" look is priceless.

I actually really like Aquaman back there in the corner, raising his hand to his mouth. Awesome character acting.

This is great! Poor Batman...

I'm secretly a fan of those Wonder Woman / Batman 'shipper Justice League fan videos on YouTube. There, I said it! :)

I have not idea that Superman was so old, I thought he was created around 1960. Well he should have an excellent diet because he still looks as when he was 20.
