    Description

    Jack Kirby and Mike Royer - Original Art for Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #147, page 28 (DC, 1972). Superman appears in every single panel on this nice clean page. This is a fantastic piece, with very limited use of white-out. Mike Royer's inks are bold, with very precise lines. It was typical for DC management to have Kirby's rendition of Superman's head re-inked by others, as the King's version was too much at odds with the accepted appearance. Fortunately, Superman's head here has been inked by long-time Kirby collaborator Mike Royer, wonderfully preserving Kirby's original vision for the character. In excellent condition, the page measures 10" x 16".
