Dissection of a Comic

This mixed media painting dissects the comic book series into its integral parts: the top panel is the title of the book; the 2nd panel refers to the romantic interest–in this case, Lois Lane; the 3rd panel¬†represents the main character–it holds a stuffed ‘pillow’ with the famous ‘S’ icon; the next two panels show action– continued in the next panel, as the story often continues into the next issue; and the lower panel is a collage of many features of the Superman story: x-ray vision, faster than a speeding bullet, changing in a phone booth, the Daily Planet, and so on.
