    Description

    Jack Kirby and Neal Adams - Original Cover Art for Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #144 (DC, 1971). The penultimate Kirby/Adams cover from Jack's run on Jimmy Olsen, this is also one of the finest, with an iconic shot of Superman soaring over the Loch Ness-esque critter rising from the Deep Scottish Lake, while the Newsboy Legion tumbles out of their raft. No one could match Kirby for sheer power, but the Adams touch takes the work to a whole new level. There are relatively few Kirby/Adams collaborations, so you'd be wise not to ignore this rare opportunity. The artwork measures 11" x 17" and has been tastefully matted and framed. The art was signed by Kirby in the upper right quadrant, though the ink has faded somewhat. A knockout cover from two of the greatest talents ever to work in comics -- c'mon, what more do you want?!?
