    Jack Kirby and Mike Royer - The Sandman #1 Cover Stat (DC, 1974). Originally scheduled as a one-shot, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby reunite for a last collaboration with this revamp of the Sandman. Speculators drove the sales of this single issue up so high that a series was scheduled. Simon and Kirby's Sandman was an otherwise unnamed hero who operated out of a place called the "Dream Dome," and was assisted by two grotesque "nightmare monsters" named Brute and Glob. This insomnia-charged cover is not original art, but "photo-ready"cover stat/paste-up art used to print this issue. The image area measures 10" x 15" and the work includes the original logo and masthead paste-up art. There is some slight water damage to the extreme left edge, outside of the image area, otherwise this photostat layout is in Excellent condition.
