    Neal Adams Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #148 Cover Original Art (DC, 1972). A mighty cover in the Jack Kirby tradition for this "gateway" book to Kirby's Fourth World saga. The dynamic and powerful cover features Supes, Jimmy, and the new Newsboy Legion. It was created in ink over graphite on Sparta Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box, logo, and other header elements are all printed paste-ups (which have discolored slightly). The bottom caption box is hand-lettered paste-up, as are the word balloons on the cover. There is glue residue near the word balloons. The issue number paste-up is missing, along with a bit from the lower caption box, and a spine paste-up, leaving glue residue behind in each place. The cover was signed by Jack Kirby. In Very Good condition.
