How to Draw Superman

I would like to take a moment and give you my opinion on how Superman should look in the comics. I don't mean red trunks vs no red trunks, but more along the lines of how the face/body are drawn. Now, since a picture is worth 1,000 words, let me lay some examples on you.

This is how Superman should be drawn:

John Byrne

Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (pbhn)

John Romita, Sr

Jerry Ordway

Dan Jurgens

And this is how Superman should NOT be drawn.

John Romita, Jr
Basically, if Superman looks like he should be carrying a club and saying "Ug. Me Sooperman.", you've got it wrong.

Now, it makes no nevermind to me, since I'm not going to buy anything that goes beyond 2000 with either company (I'm firmly in back-issue territory, as I explained on Episode 2 of The Hammer Podcasts!), but I would encourage anyone that loves the character to NOT pay for Neanderthal-Man.
