    Description

    Joe Shuster Studio - Superman, Unpublished page 9 Original Art (DC, circa 1941). Superman learns the meaning of pain -- welcome to our world, son of Krypton! Most likely, this spectacular page was unpublished and created by the artists at the Joe Shuster studio sometime in the early forties. The Man of Tomorrow stars in every panel of this action-packed extravaganza. This page is thought to be part of a unpublished yarn that may have spurred the decision to create an Achilles' heel for the Man of Steel. It wasn't until years later, in Superman #61, that Kryptonite was finally established as a weakness for Superman. The image area of this page measures 13" x 19" and, aside from a few small creases in the page, the art is in Very Good condition. Joe Shuster signed the art in its lower right border.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
