    Description

    Neal Adams and Dick Giordano 1977 Super DC Calendar Cover Original Art (DC, 1977). Larger even than "twice-up," this measures a colossal 20" x 17.5". DC's best heroes and the best villains, by arguably their best-ever artist, how could you ever top that? This calendar was released in November of the Bicentennial year 1976, though that isn't stopping the Joker and Sivana from trying to blow up the Statue of Liberty. Rounding out the villains' roll call are Gorilla Grodd, the Cheetah, Solomon Grundy, and Lex Luthor, facing off with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Captain Marvel. The piece is beautifully framed with a copy of the published calendar to an awe-inspiring 43" x 26" for some serious "wall power."
    The Statue of Liberty is ink over graphite on Bristol board. The heroes group and villains group were each done on separate pieces of illustration paper that are attached to the main board. Faint traces of other art are visible underneath, so there might be more art on the main board that is covered up. The artists' signatures are a stat. Some cuts are visible in the main board, as so often seen on 1970s covers. Good condition.
