    Joe Staton Adventure Comics #461 Lot of 12 Original and 4 Re-Created Pages Group of 16 (DC Comics, 1979/2003). The death of the Golden Age (Earth-Two) Batman took place over two issues of Adventure, these chapters being the first half of the story. It was 16 pages total (a 13-page story and a three-page prologue). When our consignor purchased the group from Staton, four pages were missing (the 3-page prologue and Story Page 2) so the artist re-created those -- the re-creations are each dated 2003 at the bottom. You'll notice some of the original pages have All-Star Comics #75 crossed out from the margins, that's because the story was originally slated for that issue before that title was canceled. Hence the three-page prologue introducing the Justice Society, who had never appeared in Adventure Comics before! Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with image areas of 10" x 15". The pages are slightly toned, all of the pages have some word text paste-ups (about 50% of all word balloons are paste-ups), some have staining, minor corner and edge wear, the 4 pages that are re-created don't have any paste-ups, and are signed and dated by Staton. Averaged in Excellent condition.
