In a bit of synchronicity, this interview of Sprouse just appeared online. Disregard the typos. It's pretty good!
And Sprouse was set to do a Superman story, he says, but it was canceled.
My favorite quote: "It was very easy to break in: I simply mailed sample pages to DC Comics and they called me two weeks later! "

Artist Chris Sprouse has a very appealing style. Simple, clean and really elegant line work, expressive faces, terrific page design, smart sexy ladies, powerful men, scary villains — Sprouse does it all and makes it look easy.
He's currently working on a new series featuring Tom Strong, the character he co-created with Alan Moore.
I ganked the above image from his website which is well worth a visit.
Wouldn't it be great if Chris Sprouse regularly drew Superman? I sure think so.
Wayne Boring + Curt Swan + Kurt Schaffenberger = Chris Sprouse. That's how I figure it, anyway.
