Check out this wonderful statue of Superman, adapted from the Max Fleischer theatrical cartoons of the 1940s. Sacramento-based sculptor David James has created sculpts based on every screen version of Superman – from Kirk Alyn to the forthcoming Henry Cavill. His Fleischer Superman is pretty incredible – makes me want to see new cartoons in this exact style. Click gallery below for some close-up images of the sculpt, unpainted and painted, from all different angles.
