I liked Batman as a kid, but I’ve always been a Superman fan… well maybe not for a small segment of time back in the late 90’s and early 00’s! Even before Batman 89 hit the screens, I was so caught up into the awesome hype of it all; I loved it!
I had baseball cards, fan magazines, shirts, keychains, toys, models, the tiger electronics handheld, soda cups and all sorts of merchandise! Strangely, I haven’t kept any of those in my old age except for the comics I bought at that time.
My prized possession from all of those things was the movie adaptation by Denny O’Neil and the jaw dropping art from Jerry Ordway. As a Superman and Crisis fan, I was already familiar with mr. Ordways amazing art, but he really outdid himself with the adaptation! It’s probably the only comic book movie adaptation that really made me feel like I was watching the movie all over again.
I can’t possibly come close to mr. Ordway’s artwork, but in a way this is not only a tribute to the movie but to his astounding artwork in that comic. My fav’rit!
