    John Byrne and Dick Giordano Action Comics #590 Splash Page 9 Metal Men Original Art (DC, 1987). The Metal Men guest-star when DC Comics presents the story "Better Drying Thorough Chemistry". When Clark Kent falls into a vat of chemicals, a new "Super-Chemo" is born. John Byrne was obviously having a great time writing for one of DC's longest-running titles. This page was forged in ink over graphite on bright white DC Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". It is signed by comic art legend Dick Giordano in (appropriately enough) gold ink on the lower right. Trimmed to the bottom margin, the page was then mounted in a handsome mat and glass front framed to 21" x 26". In Excellent condition.
