Retro Superboy

I found this beautiful piece by Michael Cho on a couple of sites today – it’s the cover of a new hardbound collection of Superboy comics from the 1940s.  The composition, the colors, the red wagon, the antiquated design of Superboy’s shorts — it captures perfectly a lost, impossible era of innocence and nostalgia.  It’s the era every kid lived in when he started collecting comics.

And the pup, probably a nod to Krypto, is simply wonderful.

Personally: keep the stories.  I’d rather have a framed print of this, instead.
