INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
It’s hard following up after the class act that’s Superman, with him being “Super” and all. However, former Walt Disney storyboard artist Brittney Williams is showing off the other side of the Man of Steel’s life in a great piece of fan art dubbed The Daily Planet Files.
These comics and illustrations show the meek Clark Kent and the gregarious staff at Metropolis’ Daily Planet as if they were a comic series you never knew existed. Working as a spirital kin to the Lois Lane, Girl Reporter pitch by Dean Trippe and the never-realized Wonder Womwn series by Tintin Pantoja, Williams’ The Daily Planet Files shows the Justice League isn’t the only interesting group he’s part of.
“[The Daily Planet Files] all began as I was nonchalantly channel surfing one day in early April, and I happened upon Superman The Animated Series,” Williams wrote on her DeviantArt journal. “Immediately I was thrown back into the early 90′s when I was a kid, and afternoons were spent playing outside then running into the house at 3 to watch Superman. I started to remember how much I actually used to love Superman and I was suddenly inspired to draw.”
Williams has posted numerous pin-ups, character sheets and unlettered comics pages for The Daily Planet Files, but as far as we can tell it’s purely fan art. Maybe that can change? Here’s a sample Williams’ pages; see more on her blog.
