Page Nine THE ACTION PAGE YOU’VE BEEN CLAMORING FOR!!!
Panel 1 NARR: Dubai
Long narrow panel across the top-- from the ground looking up we see buildings crumbled, people running in terror-- total chaos and destruction. Above we see Superman hovering in midair-- he’s just arrived so his cape should be swirling to the right as he’s come to a quick stop.
Superman (thinking) – This is no Earthquake!
Panel 2 and 3 are in the middle of the page, same size.
Panel 2-- Superman lands in the street, in the foreground closest to us we see the foot of a giant robot.
Superman- I should have known, Luthor. I could smell your stench halfway across the Atlantic.
Panel 3- We see a HUGE robot creature with a domed head-- sitting inside is Lex Luthor, arch nemesis, evil scientist and all around bad juju provider for Superman.
Luthor- You have a real mean streak, Kal-El. I don’t know why you always have to resort to personal attacks like that.
Panel 4 – Large panel at the bottom-- the Robot unleashes a huge mega blast from it’s palms that knocks Superman for a loop. Really powerful and painful here.
Luthor – It hurts my feelings.

These are the cartoons I spoke about in class last week.
Beautifully drawn using rotoscoping (the process of tracing photos of actual actors to capture movement) with stunning composition and coloring-- these have inspired GENERATIONS of comic book artists. Check out the sample above.
If you're interested in getting a set-- get the official set from Warner Bros which is from the best possible film sources-- beware cheaper sets because these are in the public domain and can be released by any video outfit making a lot of inferior copies out there.
SUPERMAN CARTOONS ON AMAZON -- GET THIS SET.
Note: these might be out of stock from Amazon-- you can search eBay for the same set, I just got one for $10 plus shipping. There are also third party sellers on Amazon that have these.
Or you can just watch them free on YouTube-- they will go a long way towards helping your work.
