    Description

    Curt Swan and Neal Adams Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #117 Cover Original Art (DC Comics, 1969). Jimmy finds himself on yet another alternate Earth, in this issue's cleverly titled "Planet of the Capes". Teaming up for the cover are two heavy-hitters: the "old-school" champion, Curt Swan, and the then-new kid on the block, Neal Adams. This is one of the last of the 12-cent issues, with only three more to go before the price hike. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with a matted image area 10" x 15" with an overall glass front frame size of 30" x 26.5". A copy of the printed cover is also framed beautifully beside the art. Lightly toned, with light soiling, adhesive residue, and discolored title, and text stat paste-ups, with the art being a hand-drawn paste-up affixed to board. Art is in Very Good condition.
