    Description

    Neal Adams and Dick Giordano Super DC Calendar 1976 Back Cover Illustration Original Art (DC, 1975). An image immediately familiar with comic book fans, this began life as the back cover for this fantastic 1976 calendar. Next, some paste-up was added to the center circle (still affixed to the artwork) so this image could be used as an advertisement card for newsstands. Then, in mid-1976, it was used as the basis to lightbox a new piece of art for the front cover for the Limited Collectors' Edition #C-46: Justice League of America. The changes made in this image were to replace the center area with the Justice League of America seal, and to replace Captain Marvel with Aquaman, along with some subtle inking changes. This last image was also later used on T-shirts and on a pint glass. The original art was created in ink over graphite on 15.5" x 13.5" Bristol board. Very slight glue residue near some of the paste-up center parts, with a bit on Batman's hand and lower cape. Some tape in the edges and margin. Overall in Very Good condition.
