    Chris Ware Acme Novelty Library #10 Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth Page Original Art (Fantagraphics, 1998). A surrealistic and slightly disturbing, dream-like sequence, featuring Jimmy, the Super-Man (or simply Superman, as he is referred to here), Jimmy's Mom, and her boyfriend Nelson. A panel featuring the abandoned Jimmy from this iconic page was used for the cover of the New Yorker magazine, the June 21 and 28, 1999 double issue. This is a large page, reminiscent of old-time Sunday newspaper full-pagers, the strip has an image area of approximately 15" x 21.75". It's in ink, blue pencil, and Zipatone shading film on illustration board. A couple of art elements were cut from the board and repositioned; other than that and a few stains in the margins, the art is in Excellent condition. Signed and dated 2003 in the lower right corner.
