    Carmine Infantino and Bernard Sachs - Green Lantern #88, 13-page Golden Age Green Lantern Story "The Menace of the Marching Toys" Original Art (DC, 1949/1972). A caption in Green Lantern #88 explained: "This Golden Age Green Lantern story was originally scheduled for the July-August, 1949 issue of (the old) Green Lantern -- but the magazine ceased publication with the previous issue. At long last we are happy to present this nugget from the golden past." Unlike other "written off" DC art from this era, the splash page of this yarn has remained intact and was uncut. Each of the other pages from the tale was cut into thirds, with a cut between each panel tier. The top tier of page eight is missing, otherwise the story is complete. Nearly as impressive as the story itself, are the many detailed pencil sketches on the back of these pages. The influence of Jack Kirby can be seen on the young Carmine Infantino in these sketches. The image area of the conjoined art is 13" x 18". Other than most of the pages being cut into three pieces, some edge wear, and some paper aging, the art is in Very Good condition. A copy of the comic book is included in this lot.
