Comparing Comics #2

Astr_Superman_Cover_Edited_1.2_merged

Yes! It´s time to look at some more Superman and Astro Boy Covers! If you guys remember, I had a very brief comparison of Astro Boy and Superman in the first Comparing Comics issue. All comparisons in this series will be mostly in jest and should not be taken too serious.

As I promised, this week we will look at some action packed covers from Astro Boy and Superman, and I will not let you down! First off, let´s look at the most iconic Superman cover that exists, the first comic where Superman makes his appearance:

1-1

Looks like the civilians run away in fear from a Superman psychopath that likes to destroy cars, but I trust the Man of Tomorrow knows what he is doing.

Here´s Astro Boy in a similar pose:

Puppy!

Puppy!

 

Astro Boy sure has to destroy his share of robots throughout his career, always claiming that he doesn’t really want to:

Superman has his share of robot rumbles as well, but Superman doesn’t share Astro Boy´s compassion for robots´ feelings. I think Superman is just happy he can finally fight someone he can go all-out on:

To end this week´s Comparing Comics Astro Boy asked me to show this cover of him and his friend:

That´s nice, Astro Boy, you should consider to team up with Supergirl and her super-horse Comet.

Supergirl is a really cool superhero and can do amazing things, you would make a good team, Astro Boy. Isn´t that right, Comet?

You are sick, Comet, very very sick…

Alright, folks, that´s all for now, this has been Comparing Comics, and I will see you again next week!
