Artist Proof: Episode 9 - Jon Bogdanove

On this episode, Adrian speaks with one of his favorite comic book artists Jon Bogdanove. Bogdanove is most known for delivering his dynamic and powerful art with an 80-plus issue run on DC Comics' Superman: Man Of Steel title. With writer Louise Simonson, he also co-created the character Steel during the Death & Return of Superman saga in the early 1990s. 

Jon expounds upon his earliest influences such as the classic Adventures of Superman television series and the work of legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby. He also gives a behind-the-scenes peek into how the Death & Return of Superman storyline was orchestrated and the inspirations for the character Steel. Lastly, Bogdanove discusses being a ’style chameleon’, his outreach in teaching art to middle-schoolers and his creator-owned comic Strongman.
