Happy Birthday Curt Swan!

Today is Curt Swan's birthday, as the mighty penciller of steel was born 91 years ago!

In celebration, let's take today's Superman pic from one of the few times that Curt Swan actually inked his own work. As far as I know, that only happened a handful of times in his four decade career. One of those rare instances was in the pages of Superman Annual #9 from 1983!

As an extra added bonus, that's the man himself flying with Superman.

Happy Birthday, Curt Swan!

  1. Curt Swan is one of my favorite Superman artists of all time, not that that's unusual! Elliot S! Maggin is one of my favorite Superman writers. What a team!
