    Description

    Al Plastino Action Comics #289 Story Page 13 Original Art (DC, 1962). Clark Kent, alias Superman, seems helpless when imprisoned by a hoodlum gang. His fellow captive, a fellow journalist with a taste for practical jokes, comes to the rescue -- sort of, anyhow. Plastino hedged his bets as a Superman artist by emulating the stylistic attributes of Curt Swan, here, and Wayne Boring, there -- the definitive Superman artists of the midcentury. One rarely sees Clark Kent looking so angry (Panels 2-3). Lois Lane and Perry White have cameo appearances in this closing page from "The Super-Practical Joker!" Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18". In Excellent condition.
