Superman Done Right...

Via Mau Artist

A little over a year ago I shared a video by artist Mauricio Abril entitled A Gotham FairytaleNow Mauricio has done a tribute to the Man of Steel. Check it out after the jump.

Mauricio writes:

"A Smallville Man" is my animatic film featuring an original Superman story told in over 150 illustrations set against the aural backdrop of the song "Walk" by the American Rock band Foo Fighters. 

The film explores the relationship between Superman's past and present through separate stories that take us from the jungles of South America to the quaint streets of his hometown of Smallville. For those not quite familiar with South America, it's "like America but south" (sorry for the un-related movie quote, but I just couldn't resist). The two story lines ultimately converge thematically to show that the "S" on his chest represents not just his alien power but also the strength of his humanity.
