Not a hoax

Apparently it's for the 1000th Action Comics or Superman or something.
It'll be the first Sean Phillips variant I don't buy.

Perhaps the eyes are also contributing to that effect? Seem to be shaped differently from one another.

And how the tie just cuts off the Superman top doesn't seem right either.

It's the head, the head is too big, maybe?

yes the head.

 

It's probably lightboxed from a reference photo of Sean himself, so I hope he doesn't read this forum. :biggrin:

Yeah, the flat Supes logo isnt helping. Its like he is opening up his shirt and revealing a wall.

Maybe that's deliberate, for comic effect?

You know, the Superman logo/El family crest being rendered in an obviously different style to the rest of the illustration in order to heighten the fact that it doesn't chime with the rest of the drawing?

That's my take too.
He looks decidedly unhappy.

And Sean Phillips knows Hellblazer.
