Here’s a page from Tom Strong #14 by Chris Sprouse, a wonderful artist who took over on Supreme and left the book with Moore after publisher/creator Rob Liefeld’s backers pulled out, leaving the publisher in limbo for several years. Moore and Sprouse reworked the Supreme stories they’d been working on and a pitch for another Liefeld character called Prophet into Tom Strong and it’s some of both creators’ strongest work.

Here’s Jerry Ordway’s fantastic Superman #1 homage cover for Supreme #41, my personal favorite work by Alan Moore and some of the best old-fashioned superhero stories you’ll ever read. Erik Larsen’s reappropriation of the character as a dumb, macho riff on Superman is frankly the artistic equivalent of a war crime and I wish the revived series nothing but the worst. Larsen’s a nice guy and The Savage Dragon is fun, but that character, as originally conceived, is fucking terrible.
