Superman came to me in a dream the other night...







strangest thing happened to me over the weekend. I had a wild dream and in that dream i came up with an unbelievable retelling of the Superman mythos. Don't ask me whyyy I dreamt that. I haven't even picked up a superman book or watched a superman film/cartoon/tv show in months. I've actually been spending my time working on my own 'secret' projects and all of my reading is dedicated to my Y:The Last Man marathon. But there he was, the man of steel, my favorite comic book character (next to spidey), completely different yet still comfortably familiar, invading my dreams. For a long time now I have wanted to develop an original Superman story, which is insanely difficult (70 years worth of storytelling makes it so) and I was never really happy with anything I came up with (or read from others or watched on the big screen for that matter). That is, until this crazy dream. The next morning I flew out of bed and ran to the computer and started a three day long process of writing an outline for this tale. My Fiance definitely thinks I am insane and is probably wondering why I'm dreaming about Superman instead of her but this was an epiphany! I finally had my superman story and I wrote it subconsciously! Now, I wish I could tell you all about this kick ass story but unfortunately I have to keep it under wraps until I can think of a way to get it seen by DC (its a long shot but hey, one day right?). Until then I leave you with some sketches I did over those three days that were also spawned from the dream. Enjoy!
