    Description

    Dick Sprang Batman Around the World Through Time and Space Original Art (DC, 1994). Dick Sprang worked anonymously on Batman stories for DC for many years during the Golden Age. He was known by many fans as "the Good Batman artist", just as Carl Barks was known by his fans as "the Good Duck artist". Sprang was responsible for the Batmobile's 1950's redesign, and the original design for the Riddler. This original ink and watercolor painting was produced by Sprang in 1993-94 from his Arizona studio. It is titled "Batman -- Through Earth and Space, Past to Future". The 17.5" x 28" image area is matted and UV glass front framed to 26" x 36". It is signed in the lower left of the image area. The work comes with a signed limited edition copy of The Art of Richard W. Sprang published in 1998 by Striking Impressions (#146/200), a book that sells for hundreds of dollars on its own. Both are in Excellent condition.
