    Curt Swan and John Forte Superman #137 Story Page 26 Original Art (DC, 1960). Heritage has only ever offered about five pages by Curt Swan that were older than this one. The last page of "Chapter III: Superman vs. Super-Menace" features the end of the Super-Outlaw. The page was created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.75" x 19" (including the stat header paste-up). The header has a small rip and wrinkle; otherwise, the page is in Excellent condition. But wait... there's more! Let's talk about that custom wood frame by Dan Makara. It houses the UV glass front mat and page in a stylish array of decoupage images of Superman and related characters. They are parts and pieces from actual comic book pages and covers, including a portion from the cover of this very issue dead center in the top and bottom edge. Also of note is the Curt Swan signature that is imbedded in the lower edge of the frame as well. Other characters surrounding this stunning page are Beppo the Super-Monkey, Supergirl, Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy, Krypto, Comet the Super-Horse, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Batman, Aquaman, and Green Lantern. Even Bob Hope and Jerry Lewis make the scene! The bottom portion of the frame also sports the DC/National Comics bullet taken from a comic book spin rack of the 1960s. This is one classy presentation for a fantastic Curt Swan page. The detailed Dan Makara frame can be seen online at HA.com.
