From the Man Without Fear to the Man of Tomorrow. Marvel Comics’ Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada shared a sketch of DC Comics’ Superman before attending Fan Expo Dallas this weekend.

The former Marvel Editor-in-Chief posted the close-up sketch of the Man of Steel yesterday, complete with the hero’s signature hair curl and determined gaze. Quesada joked that drawing the iconic DC hero made him “feel a bit dirty” but added that it is “fun to do the occasional off the beaten path sketch.” Take a minute to appreciate the sketch.
While it always makes me feel a bit dirty, it’s fun to do the occasional off the beaten path sketch. Who’s coming to Fan Expo Dallas this weekend? pic.twitter.com/MnBUeQCKs5

While Quesada is known for his work with Marvel (he was the publisher’s Editor-in-Chief from 2000 until 2011), he started his comics career at Valiant Entertainment, and even co-created DC’s Jean-Paul Valley, otherwise known as the vigilante Azrael, with Dennis O’Neal in 1992. Jean-Paul Valley went on to play an important — and violent — role in Batman’s classic Knightfall arc, briefly taking up the mantle of Batman after the Dark Knight was taken out of commission by Bane.
