    Someone once said that with progress, things get better. Apparently, their is one exception to the rule and that exception seems to be the artwork of comic books. Today, Alex Ross is one superb artist. Yesterday, we had Sheldon Moldoff, Irwin Hasen and Wayne Boring. These men will never be replaced and their works will live on long after they are dust. The works of Wayne Boring as applied to Superman will never be duplicated or copied. Wayne was one of a kind. His Superman characterization shows how a simple comic book character became A SUPER ICON.

    Bigger isn’t always best. The comics of the 40’s and the 50’s made Superman and Batman everything they were and are. The artists of Yesterday could very well be the Artists of Today personified.
