A rare piece of original comic artwork from two of the great late comic artists. It has everything. It’s in great condition. It features aguably the two biggest super hero’s that DC Comics have ever produced, both dating back to the 1940’s. The black background to most of the page gives great depth to the image which you don’t always find with splash pages. And, look at that Superman ‘Whoosh’ in the bottom panel as he flies through the air.
Pure Classic Comic book art!!
