In the intro to the Man of Steel TPB, you cite Rosalind Russell as one of your influences on Superman. Not wanting to over assume, but was her Hildy Johnson character in HIS GIRL FRIDAY a Lois prototype for you? Besides those you list did / do you generally have actors in mind to help you hone the voices of well known characters? Thanks.

I had never known mrs, Russell so thanks for the tip.

One quick look to Google and what a great set of beautiful beautiful photos of a beautiful beautiful lady. Hard to beat black and white pictures!

Definitely Hildy! And Walter is not a bad Clark Kent.

I definitely sense less of the "wimpy" Clark from your run so injecting some of Grant's Walter into him goes hand in hand. Thanks.

Definitely agree- JB's Clark wasn't a wimpy pushover with a weak stomach.

I took much of my Clark from George Reeves (my first).
