George Reeves as Clark Kent by MJBivouac George Reeves as Clark Kent by MJBivouac
Here is my portrait of George Reeves as Clark Kent from "The Adventures of Superman" TV series from the 1950s.
To me George Reeves will always be Superman personafied. You can have your Chris Reeve and all the others that came after, but none hold a candle to George in my opinion.
Colored pencil on Canson colore art paper.

Beautiful rendering! I have often said George Reeves is the gold standard of live-action superheroics. Nicely done.

Thanks very much. To me George Reeves will always be Superman. Questionable 50s era TV special effects and all. He's still MY Man Of Steel. And perhaps more importantly, Reeves was hands down the BEST Clark Kent EVER! Some people might not think this part of the character is all that important, but when you see Christopher Reeve's Kent, which I think is pretty darned awful, you realize just how important being a good Clark really is.
Way back in the 80s I wanted to like Christopher Reeve as Superman. I have seen all the movies, but over the years I have grown to dislike those films more and more. I have nothing against Reeve himself. Frankly I liked him MORE in Somewhere in Time. He was never a great actor, a really bad Clark Kent, but not a bad guy.

You are most kind. After reflection, I'm NOW not 100% happy with it, I may do it again.

Good one! I've just been re-watching the original episodes and enjoying the nostalgia tremendously. No one has equalled George, nor will he ever be equalled.

Thank you so much. I still love those old AOS episodes. Reeves was just great as Clark.
