This is Homoerotic Superman drawn by Adam Graphite! This is the 8th entry for the Homoerotic Superman Pin-Up Challenge.
ATTN: ARTISTS/ILLUSTRATORS/CARTOONISTS OF G+/Tumblr/Facebook/DeviantArt/Twitter/etc: it’s the Homoerotic Superman Pin-Up Challenge!
I challenge you to make a homoerotic version of a Superman iteration of your choice — pre-existing or your own invention! Racial, ethnic, cultural, age and body type diversity are especially welcome. Instructions on how to deliver your pin-up are at the end of this posting. :)
Any version of Superman in ANY work and medium qualifies for the homoerotic pin-up treatment! Here are some Supermans for you to homoeroticize:
— Homoerotic Barrel-Chested Dad 60s Superman!
— Homoerotic Sunshine Superman, who’s no jive turkey!
— Homoerotic Muscle Hunk 70s Superman!
— Homoerotic Hairy Chested Late-80s Superman!
— Homoerotic Soviet Superman!
— Homoerotic Red Kryptonite Ant-head Superman!
— Homoerotic Hyper-bulgy 90s Superman!
— Homoerotic Long White-Bearded Grampy Superman From The Future!
…and so on! With red underpants preferred, but that’s just my bias. :-D
Your deadline is Sunday, August 4th, 2013. When you are done with your illustration, send the image to firstname.lastname@example.org along with 1) the name you want me to credit for the illustration, 2) a link to your web-presence if you want me to use one with the Tumblr post, and 3) the name you want me to link to on G+ and/or Facebook if you want me to link you there as well. I will post Homoerotic Superman Pin-Ups on my tumblog and on my other online presences with link and credit as I receive them. I will announce category winners after the deadline!
Please reshare with your gay or gay-friendly illustrator and cartoonist friends :)

Superman and Jimmy Olsen become enemies and it makes the front page of The Daily Planet! This is an original cover for a French reprint of Superman comics.
Reprinters in other countries often used new covers to collect material from multiple issues and/or characters. This looks either like a really clean blow-up or an excellent trace of interior comics art by Curt Swan.

Curt Swan draws Clark Kent’s swanky home office! Love the cityscape with the embedded panels on the top of the page setting up that we’re visiting Clark’s pad. Love Clarkie’s body langauge and facial expression, which imply boredom without petulance. And the 70s modern furniture is so chic!
From Superman 258.

If you’re wondering who inspired Curt Swan’s dynamic figure drawing of male bodies in action, it was Leyendecker. This is rare U.S. Navy Football Mini Poster illustration by J. C. Leyendecker from 1921.

Curt Swan draws Superman telling a kid the bad news about being an accessory to a crime.
I love the representationally-appealing cops in this PSA.

After watching a violent and disturbing preview of the Injustice: Gods Among Us DC superhero video game, I needed something lighthearted to make me not kill myself.
This page is from DC Comics Presents 87, featuring a team-up between Superman and Earth-Prime Superboy, before the latter became a violent and disturbing asshole.

Curt Swan’s pencils for an unpublished Superman/Creeper team-up! It’s amazing that Swan would make even an over-the-top costume design by Steve Ditko look elegant and manly at the same time.
