    Sheldon Mayer - Sugar and Spike #40, Complete 1-page Story "Who's Who?" Original Art (DC, 1962). "That Sugar! She's such a clear thinker! Some days I almost hate her!" Role-playing is taken to a new level as Sugar and Spike come to terms with the power of their imaginations, here in this one pager by Sheldon Mayer. Using his own kids for inspiration, Mayer concocted "Sugar and Spike," which many today consider one of the twenty-or-so best comic books ever done. They're all smiles and wide-eyed innocence, but it's just a matter of time before the antics begin. The art measures 11.5" x 17" and includes the original indicia paste-up. The art was cut and remounted onto another board in the final art, and you see some glue residue and random white-out, but overall the work is in Very Good condition. From the collection of Gill Fox.
