DC Lets Frank Miller Draw Superman's Penis for Dark Knight III

http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--cMt_qkie--/c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/1461169581158421063.jpg



Hello. This is an actual comic cover drawn by legendary comic artist Frank Miller. Itís the cover to a companion comic to Millerís upcoming Dark Knight III: The Master Race series, and it appears DC is actually going to publish it despite the fact that 1) it is horrible, 2) it is laughable and 3) you can clearly see the outline of Supermanís junk in his red briefs.

Iím basically speechless that this is happening. The only thing I can think of is that DC is so desperate for more Dark Knight Returns money that not only have they brought Frank Miller back, but been forced to accede to his obviously terrible demands, such as naming the third installment ďThe Master Race.Ē Given the horrible art of The Dark Knight Strikes Again, it made sense that DC would agree to a problematic title as long as Miller brought on board some decent collaborators. Which is presumably why Brian Azzarello is co-writing and Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson are taking the actual art duties, for the upcoming series.

But I guess Miller also demanded to be allowed draw something for his effort, and DC was forced to allow him to draw this cover to a Superman and Atom DK3 tie-in. And I have to assume they promised Miller they wouldnít change it, because as much as I give DC crap for being obtuse, I canít believe anyone in the DC Comics office right is looking at Supermanís face, his body dysmorphia and most especially the outline of his dick, and not praying they had the power to prevent it. And then to delete it and smash all the computers that had ever hosted the image with hammers.

1. How disappointing...

... I was expecting something more Rule 34 from this post.

I'm certain Superman is uncircumcised, not because I've seen pictures, but because it would be impossible.

5. It looks like a quick sketch for a paper's 'news cartoon'

The shoes are "I don't have to bother about these - they're not important to the punchline of the cartoon". The face is so oddly drawn that at first I wondered if it was meant to be "Superman has been burnt!!!!". The pants bulge is only one of the problems, IMO.

12. It looks exactly like something I would have doodled in high school.

On the back of a Pee-Chee, while listening to a boring math lecture.

Frank Miller has always been a lazy artist. Go back over your issues of The Dark Knight Returns and note how the quality and detail in his art clearly gets worse and worse as the series progresses.

4. Man of Steel...

He's faster than a speeding bullet. He's more powerful than a locomotive. He's able to leap tall buildings at a single bound. Why can't he get a girl?

13. It's a classic.

It's a main reason why I've always hated Clark Kent / Lois Lane romance plots.

10. Is he sick or something?

Granted, I realize the man is a hateful asshole and that his art has always looked as if it was drawn in a rage but that cover is exceptionally bad, even for Frank Miller.
