    Jack Kirby - Adventure Comics #86 Sandman Story, page 4 Original Art (DC, 1943). Jack Kirby and Joe Simon were a busy team during the mid-1940s, especially during their tenure at DC Comics. In addition to the Sandman, they had a real hit with their Boy Commandos book; plus they were still producing "The Newsboy Legion" stories for Star Spangled Comics. In order to make it all happen on schedule, Jack and Joe would sometimes work apart on different projects. This page, from the June-July 1943 issue of Adventure Comics, is considered by most art experts to be solo Kirby. It's a prime page as well; a young boy who yearns for long pants (can anyone remember when it was standard for young boys to wear short pants until a certain age?) dreams the Sandman pays him a visit, ending with the boy in bed thinking "Only a dream..." in the final panel. This page is completely unrestored; as such, there is some age damage to the illustration board in the form of chipping and discoloration along the edges. The 13" x 18" image area is unaffected by this, and remains in Very Good condition. Your dream of finding a Jack Kirby Golden Age Sandman page has come true -- begin bidding!
