    Ross Andru and Dick Giordano Superboy Spectacular #1 Cover Original Art (DC, 1980). It's the Boy of Steel and his superdog, Krypto, comin' atcha courtesy of the dynamic team of Ross Andru and Dick Giordano! While this one-shot, filled mainly with reprinted material, may not seem like much, this was a very important comic. It was released in December, 1979 as DC's first direct sales-only title, signaling the end of newsstand comic sales in America. The art is in ink over graphite on DC Comics Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 9.75" x 15", with all original masthead logo and type elements. The art has a minor glue stain on Superboy's cape, and some very minor handling wear in the borders; otherwise, it's in Excellent condition. Includes a tearsheet from the September, 2005 issue of The Comics Buyer's Guide, featuring an image of this cover and a discussion of the original comic.
