Title cards to the eight Famous Studios Superman theatrical shorts. Like the original nine by Fleischer, some of these were originally animated; the handgun in “Showdown” moved, as did the waterfall in “The Underground World.”
For some reason this feels like, er, a slightly more problematic set of images than the first. Oh well. At least “Eleventh Hour” and “The Underground World” are breathtakingly beautiful (and “The Mummy Strikes” ain’t nothing to sneeze at, either)…
Title cards to the original nine Fleischer Studios Superman theatrical shorts. What’s great about these - which I couldn’t capture due to my deficient GIF animating technology - is that a number of them are themselves animated. The “magnetic” part of “The Magnetic Telescope” flickers like a neon sign, the “Terror on the Midway” spotlight moves, etc.
I’ve never understood why we’ve never seen the Mechanical Monsters again. Such great designs.
That’s… um… uh… maybe I’ll just leave this here, then.

From a book of pulp covers I don’t remember the title of. One scan of quite a few. Love the coloring on this one a lot, though.
Seriously, that is some gorgeous shading.
