Artist on First 'Superman' Feedback: 'Not Every Character Is Italian!'

John Romita Jr., who takes over DC's "Superman" monthly with Wednesday's issue, recalls the initial reaction to his first drawing of the Man of Tomorrow in this exclusive video.

This Wednesday sees the release of DC Entertainment’s Superman No. 32, the first issue by the new creative team of Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and artist John Romita Jr., making his DC comic book debut after decades working for the publisher’s biggest competitor, Marvel.

In this exclusive clip from tomorrow’s episode of DC All Access — the web series promoting the company’s comic book, television, movie and video game projects — Romita talks about the feedback he received from DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio on his first drawing of the iconic Man of Steel. Spoiler: It’s probably not what you’d expect.
