pretty nice.

anatomically, superman is a little weird. nothing wrong with drawing with style, but his rib cage in panel 1 is really bulked up to much, and the space between his rib cage and his pelvis is way to short.
and his left leg is all swollen and bulky. kinda weird.

Yeah I agree completely, definitely not one of my stronger pages.

I think superman looks much more powerful in 1st page. I prefer page one, maybe switch the last panel in the 1st page with last panel in pg2

I see a strong Scott McCloud influence ? I was a big fan of Zot myself.

It's interesting that you mention that. I'm not really familiar with Mcloud's work but after you mentioned it I look up some of his work and I can definitely see what you mean!

well, the thing about the changes that you made to the first panel is that you've compromised Supes. the first page is all about the man of steel. The second page he just becomes a smaller part of the environment. Also, I think the second panel on the first page is much more dynamic. But it's cool that you changing stuff up and playing around with different ways to show the same scene. I don't necessarily think the changes you made were for the better. But I do like the crowd scene from page two. You have a fun style! This is some good stuff.

Love the faces expressions.

Muscles and fights can be a 10% of a comic book. Donīt forget draw samples of normal live too.

I'd say take the first two panels in the first draft (with rib cage fixed) and put them with the last two panels of your revised page...and you've got a winning 3rd draft.
Awesome work...also love your expressions....very cool! I'm a big believer that expressive faces make the page
