    John Sikela -Original Art for Early Superman, page 11 (DC, undated). John Sikela was second only to Wayne Boring in sheer number of Superman pages produced, and his muscular take on the Man of Steel is instantly recognizable to anyone who has perused that classic Golden Age run. Sikela's Superman was dynamic, his poses always heroic. No piece of artwork could represent the advent of the Golden Age of comics better than an early Superman page. We have not been able to determine exactly which issue this beauty hails from, but we are sure it's one of the coolest pieces we've seen, with the Man of Steel appearing in every single one of the six panels. Anybody can have a modern Superman page or even a Silver Age page -- but only a handful can boast of owning a piece like this. This page measures 14.5" x 21", in excellent condition with very little white-out.
