    Curt Swan and Frank Chiaramonte Action Comics #500 Story Page 22 Original Art (DC Comics, 1979). For a milestone issue of the earliest superhero-showcase book, Swan and Chiaramonte retold the origin of Superman in a reminiscent flashback. Swan (the character's definitive artist, as far as many fans are concerned) devotes this sequence to the unusual childhood of Superman. Ma and Pa Kent co-star. An ideal page for the collector of Superman lore. Created in ink over graphite on DC Comics Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". Light toning and handling wear, correction marks in blue pencil and whiteout, and the top border is trimmed. Signed by Swan in the lower right corner. In Very Good condition.
