This is a beautiful and remarably realistic pic of Christopher Reeve!! I love the detailing to his face and body work. The background coloring is beautifully done. It reminds me of scene with him on the side of the building looking down" Is there something wrong with the elevator?"

Batman all the way for me, but Christopher Reeve's Superman... untouchable. Truly Legendary. Truly Iconic.

My 2 1/2 year old son owns this art, so Chris is already cemented as his Superman. Dennis was very kind in writing a letter to him about the painting for when he's older. A true gentleman and incredible artist.

Normally this sort of lighting would produce a rather ominous and vaguely threatening face. But with Supes (or Chris), there's nothing threatening about it. Just a decent, gentle man. Or as he said to Lois, "A friend".

I've seen this before, and I still love it today. It doesn't get old, and YES, he IS the Superman that ALL Supermen who try to do him will be measured by.
