    Bob Kane - Original Comic Strip Art for Batman dated 10/29/43 (Detective Comics, Inc./McClure Newspaper Syndicate, 1943). A very rare find, indeed, this is the the fifth strip from the introductory week of this historic strip, which includes a detailed cutaway view of the Batcave. Rendered in pen & ink and blue pencil (to indicate shading), this piece measures approximately 24.5" x 9.5" overall, with an image area of approximately 22.75" x 5.75". In excellent condition, there is a pasteover missing in the final panel, so that the original text is visible. The art is signed by Bob Kane in the upper left, although Jerry Robinson's influence and contribution is clearly evident.
