Shortly after the announcement that he was starting on art on Supergirl, artist Yilidray Cinar posted this snippet of a sketch on Instagram.
I am pretty amazed at how quickly I became more optimistic of this book once the new creative team was announced. And this picture did nothing but bolster that.
I know it is hard to believe ... but that is a smile on Supergirl's face!
And what a classic pose, busting through chains like this. It is iconic.
Is this a warm-up sketch? A splash page? A cover? What does the rest of it look like?
It immediately evokes the classic cover of Superman #233, the first part of the Sand Superman 'Kryptonite Nevermore' storyline. This cover has been riffed on by lots of artists. But Supergirl doing it is pretty rare.
I hope Cinar puts up other sketches and sneak peeks as the solicit date approaches!
