    Ed Hannigan and Dick Giordano Detective Comics #523 Cover Original Art (DC, 1983). Ed Hannigan turns out one of his best covers with this scorcher, pitting Batman against super-zombie Solomon Grundy. Wow! If the "Copper Age" of comics is your cup of tea, you're in store for a tasty treat here! The art is in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 9.75" x 15". There's a slight bit of handling wear, and one caption stat is held down by tape, and the Batman logo "mask" is glue-stained, but this is otherwise in Excellent condition. From the Greg Reece Collection.
