    Sheldon Mayer - Original Cover Art for Sugar and Spike #95 (DC, 1971). Sheldon Mayer is arguably one of the greatest writer/artists in the history of comics. He got in the game in the genesis of comics and continued, for decades, to turn out some of the most memorable work ever done. He is most noted for his autobiographical strip Scribbly, and for Sugar and Spike, based on the antics of his children, Merrily and Lanney. There has never been a more endearing comic produced. Fans of S & S are rabid in their quest for issues of this timeless title. Here is your chance to one-up the rest of the S & S collectors. This is a gorgeous cover wrought by the hand of a genius. It is hard enough trying to put together a run of Sugar and Spike, but just try to get your hands on a piece of Mayer's handiwork. This one will definitely cause a flurry of bidding. This museum-quality piece has a little white-out and is missing the issue number stat, but neither detracts from the beauty of this masterpiece. This piece measures 11" x 16".
