Wow. Just... wow.

Also: On a happier note, there's a part of this This American Life episode about a guy who dresses in a Superman costume and uses his powers for good.

Hee hee, that's not really too far from where I live . . . I love the massive Superman.

In my day, supervillians respected you. They wouldn't just shoot you with a gun, they'd set up a whole amusement park to catch you. Lazy kids. I'm going to take a nap.

Those do, in fact, look almost exactly like the Jimmy Corrigan superman.
Especially the angles of the faces. Amazing.

I'm going to San Diego Comic Con next week (I am a comic book artist, part time). I'm sure I'll see a few of these guys. :)

I have a picture of myself in Supergirl costume. (Yes, that's a wig.) But it was Halloween; that's my excuse, at least.

I will admit that the cape was lots of fun.
