Nathan Schulz

Born and raised in California, Nathan has been a fiend for geeky pop culture for years. ESPECIALLY comic books and movies. Can't get enough. He also likes writing his own comic books (The Shrouded City) and drinking sparkling water. Maybe it shows we've grown as a society that nobody makes fun of him for making comic books... but he does get a lot of s**t for drinking sparkling water. Win some, lose some. If you feel like it, you can follow his twitter musings: @natethegreater

Sometimes, we fall down the internet rabbit hole and we are never heard from again… MOST of the time, you find a bunch of cool art and want to share it with everyone and everything (the “everything” being robots. Hey, they want friendship too!).

So here we are again, GUARDians! As I showed in my article about Akira homages, I collected as many homages to THIS classic cover:

action_comics_1

Yep. The first. The big guy himself. Superman/Action Comics #01. I always loved this cover because its both a feat of strength and kind of terrifying. I mean look at the dude’s face in the lower left hand corner. As it turns out, this cover inspired a lot of remakes… but, oddly enough, mostly within the Superman universe.

Sit back and enjoy the pictures!

And of course I got to end it on Buffy.  It wouldn’t be me otherwise.
