"Superman vs Kalibak" - Fan art by Rene Arreola

My comic book collection consists mainly of Marvel. I have a handful of DC. But, when DC introduced it’s New 52 years ago, I saw it as the perfect opportunity to jump into the DC universe of comics. So please make what you will of the New 52; I enjoyed it. I mainly enjoyed the New 52 because I’m not as steeped in the DC universe history.

The new Superman costume introduced in the New 52 was pretty cool. I created this scene out of thin air, wanting to pit Superman in battle with someone. In this case, Kalibak. The son of Darkseid, ruler of Apokolips.

This fan art drawing was done on paper using pens and ink and some gray Copic marker for grayscale tone. It’s a fun piece, and I think the part I like the most is the feeling that Superman’s heat vision is acting more like Marvel comics’ Cyclops optic blast! I guess a bit of Marvel is peaking through in this fan art drawing. Go figure!
