Super Antics #2

Sometimes I wonder what life in Superman's universe must be like. When I wonder things, I often feel compelled to draw things. Click on each to enlarge...

I can't even imagine the chaos that must happen regularity at the optometrist's office.

Pretty good!! Didn't see that one coming. A good sly commentary on why glasses would make everyone think Clark Kent was not Superman.

Hopefully you've seen that episode ("The Big Leagues") from the (unfortunate) short lived live action "Tick" show where he is recruited by the League of Superheroes and the Tick has trouble seeing The Champion when he dons his secret ID (glasses).

That just put a smile on my face as big as the ones in the last panel. Great work and thank you.

Very Funny Mr. Callen...my favorite moment is the finger-flicking removal of the kid's specs. Always thought the folks in Superman's world were rather dim.

Funny!

I had just seen this comic earlier this morning, and then this afternoon was listening to Oliver Sacks' newest book, The Mind's Eye.

I listened to the chapter about prosopagnosia, and realized THAT is what is wrong with Lois Lane.

A brief google search revealed a blog by a woman who suffers from the same condition, and connected it to Lois Lane herself: http://throughfuchsiacoloredglasses.blogspot.com/2011/03/i-am-real-life-lois-lane.html

Insanity! I love yer blog, keep it up.

Kerry Callen said...

Wow. I didn't know that condition existed. Interesting!

1 word: Awesome.
2 more: Don't stop. haha

This is brilliant! The parody hits the bull's eye, the art is good, and it's really funny!

It feels like the narration slows down a little towards the end, though, as if the second page needed to be filled out. Maybe the space could have been put to better use by a mock advert?

I love how the characters laugh like maniacs in every one of these. Hope you're planning in coming back to this concept soon.
