    Description

    Joe Shuster Studio with Wayne Boring - Superman Sunday Comic Strip #267 Original Art (McClure Syndicate, 1944). This World War II-era Superman strip almost certainly features the artwork of Wayne Boring. As noted by many Superman historians, Boring was one of the earliest "ghosts" to pencil the Superman comic strip and he eventually took over the penciling chores on the strip completely. Note that in this "pre-lawsuit" strip, the "by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster" byline is still boldly displayed. During World War II, Superman was so powerful the writers and DC had a real dilemma when it came to portraying his patriotic exploits in stories. With his super powers, the Man of Steel could have taken out the axis high command and their armies in two seconds flat. So it was, that Superman often found himself foiling spy plots on the home front or boosting the moral of servicemen, as in this "Superman's Service for Servicemen" storyline. This Sunday has an image area of 19.5" x 25.5", and the art has been professionally restored to an Excellent condition.
