    Jim Starlin - Original Cover Art for Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes #238 (DC Comics, 1978). One of comic's most cosmic artists lends his considerable talents to this awesome wrap-around cover image. Jim Starlin gained fame at Marvel in the 1970's for his work on Captain Marvel and Warlock, but proves here that he can tackle cosmic themes at DC as well. This piece has suffered a moderate amount of water damage, resulting in overall warping of the page and a certain amount of discoloration. The image itself is done primarily on a 22" X 15.25" page, which has been mounted to a 23.5" x 17.75" page. The image area is approximately 20.5" x 15.75". There is some use of whiteout, particularly on Mon-el and Superboy's chests, Ultra Boy's face, and Saturn Girl's chin. There is some rather severe creasing and edge damage, but this doesn't really affect the actual art. There is a rectangular glue stain in the lower left corner, and editorial notations in the margins. The cover has been signed twice in the lower left corner, although one of the signatures has been damaged. All in all, an excellent piece from a legendary artist.
