    Description

    John Byrne and Walt Simonson - The World of Krypton #3 Cover Original Art (DC, 1988). Comic art titans John Byrne and Walt Simonson team up to create this magnificent image of Jor-El, Superman's father, reviewing the history tapes of his ancestor Van-L in the final battle against the Black Zero a thousand centuries ago. This is an interesting study of contrasts as the violent war scenes are viewed by a totally relaxed and contemplative Jor-El. Walter Simonson's crisp inks add energy and drama to John Byrne's masterful design. The art paper is 11.5" x 17", with an image area of 10" x 15". The art is in Excellent condition. The title logo and cover type are mounted on an acetate overlay. Both artists have signed the piece at the lower right. A spectacular piece in every way!
