Forbidden Man of Steel Print

Man of Steel (Condom) by Graham Smith. ink and digital. 8" x 8"

Early in his career, times were hard. Superman's agent suggested doing some advertising work for a few overseas firms. This product was approved, even though no one knew what the product actually was. Once discovered, the advertisement was yanked, leaving this as the only remaining copy. (Apologies to Joe Shuster)

This print will be on display and available for sale at Subtext.

Meanwhile… at the Hall of Justice A Collection of Superhero Mishaps
San Diego Comic Con Weekend: July 24th-26th, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday, July 24th, 6-10pm

Let’s face it, everyone has a bad day. Even superheroes. And this July, Subtext will host a group exhibition that captures those mishaps for all to see. Did you know that the Hulk has been arrested for wreckless endangerment? Aquaman did some time for fishing in international waters without permits, and the Wonder Twins were still awaiting trial for public indecency. It just reminds us that even though they are super, they are still human (some of them anyways). Join us during Comic Con weekend at Subtext, and see for yourself what infractions your favorite heroes have been hiding under their capes.
