Underground World

This is gorgeous art deco storyboard art for one of the animated Superman films of the '40s. If comics could be illustrated this way, I think comic books would make their way to more people. In fact, really, why not comic books that are more 'illustrated' than 'cartooned'?

I love that throne!

I hear you, but I imagine this isn't as popular a format in comics what with the time and cost for labor and printing that would be involved with producing such a piece.
