    Fred Ray Detective Comics #58 Hand Colored Batman and Robin Cover Re-Creation Original Art (c. 1980s). This hand painted re-creation by Fred Ray captures the unique and iconic Batman cover scene originally done by Ray and Jerry Robinson in pen and ink. The Golden Age great only rendered one fully executed re-creation of this show-stopping scene, and since so few original pen and ink covers turn up, this may be the best opportunity you will ever have of obtaining a classic Fred Ray Batman cover scene. Golden Age Batman legend Jerry Robinson (friend, peer, and admirer of Ray), has cited this cover image as among his favorites. Informed collectors know that Ray only did a very limited number of re-creations, and as a result, they are all highly sought-after by ardent DC enthusiasts. Fred Ray's re-creation of his December, 1941 Detective Comics #57 cover is an artistic triumph. The image area of this cover re-creation, created with ink, tempera, and watercolor measures 16" x 16.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
