    Al Plastino Superman/Batman/Captain America/Sub-Mariner Mash-Up Original Art Illustration (2008). Time was, when comics fans would revel in each new Superman and Batman story to feature Plastino's artwork -- a mainstay talent of DC Comics. On the other hand, Plastino's name is seldom associated with rival Marvel Comics, much less with such signature characters as Captain America and Namor, the Submariner. (Plastino was briefly involved with such early-day Marvel heroes as the Vision and the Patriot.) This fan-commission composition ignores such discrepancies to present a dominant bust of Superman; a gravity-defying Batman; a Captain America atop a craggy precipice; and a Sub-Mariner in a strange costume. (Namor appears to have stolen Aquaman's monogrammed belt.) Finished graphite on heavyweight illustration board. Image area, 17" x 10". Barring light pencil-smudging, in Excellent condition.
