    Description

    Dick Sprang Superman #53 Cover Re-Creation Original Art (undated). Dick Sprang's star-shattering scene is more of a dynamic re-interpretation than a strict re-creation of Wayne Boring's cover for Superman #53, the 10th Anniversary issue of the Man of Steel's title. While most celebrated for his work on Batman, Sprang often drew Superman in his World's Finest Comics stories. "Yes, it's Superman, strange visitor from the planet Krypton, who came to Earth with amazing physical powers far beyond those of mortal men. And who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, wages a never ending battle for truth and justice!" This piece has an image area of 13" x 18", and it has been matted to an overall size of 18.5" x 23.5". The art is in Excellent condition.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
