    Description

    Dick Sprang - Original Art Cover Re-creation for Detective Comics #156 (DC, 1990). A fantastic re-creation rendered by one of Batman's pre-eminent Golden Age artists. Sprang, who passed away in 2000, was a regular on the Batman titles for nearly three decades, and created a unique visual style for the Caped Crusader. This piece showcases one of his Golden Age covers from 1950, showing the creation of the new and improved Batmobile, complete with detailed blueprints. On the back, Sprang has detailed the history of the piece, and has signed and dated the work. As re-creations go, Sprang's have always been some of the best and most collectible, and this piece, which measures approximately 15" x 20" overall, is no exception.
