Superboy covers 10 and 11. I think these both ship in the same month and they mark the end of this Superboy run and, as a result, my run as cover artist of this series. Five issues! Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
Big thanks to Rafael Albuquerque, whose cover (for issue 1 of this series) I swiped for issue 11. Being the last issue, the editors wanted to hearken back (way, way back) to the first issue to show that Superboy was no longer alone in Smallville; that he had formed a small family unit now with his pals Simon and Lori. So I took their notes very literally and (with Rafael’s blessing) just pulled the camera back from his original composition to show the gang together. I redrew Rafael’s Superboy to match the styles a bit. And added Krypto, of course. I tried to pitch a Krypto-centic cover a couple of times, but it never quite worked out.
That’s that! Hope you enjoyed these!
