The ‘Lost’ Battle…

Just before posts resume from the contents of the ‘Big Red Book’ of storyboards from Superman IV: The Quest For Peace I offer this fantastic vintage article from the pages of  Retro-Vision magazine.  Besides a thorough chronicle of the Superman series (with an emphasis on the extended editions long before their subsequent discovery and release on DVD) the issue contained this unpublished storyboard set showing the Metro Club exit and Nuclearman 1 battle in its entirety shot for shot.  As the only other evidence of this sequence at the time was the comic adaptation and a few grainy photos, this, as you can imagine,  was quite the revelation.  Enjoy Martin Asbury’s energetic art and rue the fact we have yet to see Superman’s emergence from the Ladies room on film.  Part 2 plus cover coming soon…
