SUPERMAN FAMILY Model Sheets! Jimmy Olsen! Superdog! DC Comics!

Wow! Take a look at these little-seen model sheets and pose art guides from the files of DC Comics! Published in a mid-70s issue of the oversized SUPERMAN FAMILY comic, these pages show guide art (used by other beginning artists to keep the established characters "on model") by Curt Swan and Kurt Schaffenberger, two long-time Silver and Bronze Age SUPERMAN artists! For most older readers, these will always be the definitive versions of Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, the Kents, and Superdog! Click below to enlarge!

The DC staff just casually found and ran these then-decade old
sheets for this SUPERMAN FAMILY special feature!  Makes you wonder what
other overlooked and under-appreciated gems languish in their
archives, then and now!

BONUS! Look below to see how one particular style guide illustration was used on some 1973 DC merchandise!
