Artist Commemorates Superman's 75th Anniversary with Giant Collage

In honor of Superman’s 75th Anniversary this year, artist Mike Alcantara created a 48” x 68” collage replica of Action Comics #1 using only old comic books and glue. It took Alcantara six months to perfect the piece, which will debut at Austin Comic Con on November 22.

Alcantara boasts an impressive portfolio of superhero-themed collages, as well as collages featuring iconic images from Star Wars and Doctor Who. Each collage is composed of hundreds of hand-cut, comic book clips unique to a theme.
