DescriptionCarmine Infantino - Original Cover Art for Superman #199 (DC, 1967). We don't throw the word legendary around too often when we talk about comics, but we can safely use it here when describing this incredible cover by Carmine Infantino. There are some covers that stick in your memory for many reasons and here is a great example. This Superman cover is legendary in scope and design, drawn by Infantino, one of the artists who defined the Silver Age of comics. This first race between Superman and the Flash would decide who is the fastest man alive. Not only do you get this historic event captured in all its pencil and inked glory, you get cameo appearances by Batman, Robin, Green Lantern, the Atom, Hawkman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter. Aside from some general aging and slight yellowing at the upper left and middle bottom edges, and some rather extensive use of white-out, this cover is in otherwise great shape; there is a missing word balloon on the right side, with a slight glue stain where it was previously affixed. Signed by Carmine Infantino in purple pencil in the bottom right corner. Overall size is 14" x 21.5" with an image area of 12" x 18.5". No matter what the outcome of this race, you'll be the winner if you own it!
