Unrealistic

Talking over covers, I'm beginning to be bugged by the cover to Action Comics 1.


Iconic, yes, but....

Look at it! Supes has his hands in the air. That means the distance between his hands must be, within narrow limits, the distance between his shoulders - two-three feet. Which implies, looking at his grip, that the car is only two-three feet wide - which as that we can get a look at its front we can see it's not.

it's almost as if Simon and Schuster are just making shit up.

Siegel and Schuster, Dammit. Simon and Schuster are publishers. And Wayne and Schuster were the comedians who did the immortal Big Julie sketch that I can still recite pretty well verbatim.
