Description

    Dick Sprang - Original Cover Art for Batman: The Sunday Classics 1943-1946 (DC, 1991). An absolutely superb piece of artwork by Golden Age great Dick Sprang, this cover for a book reprinting the Batman Sunday strips was obviously a labor of love for the legendary artist. Although completed in the early '90s, this has to rival any of the classic covers he drew during the Darknight Detective's formative years. A quintessential rooftop image of the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder squaring off against the heavyweights in their rogues gallery: Two-Face, The Joker, Catwoman and The Penguin. All of the characters are depicted with the vintage look of the late WWII period, all rendered by the master Batman artist of that era. The art is in perfect condition and is huge, measuring 20" x 30". An amazing display piece that would beautifully grace the collection of any Batman fan.
