    Description

    Pete Costanza Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #130 Story Page 6 Original Art (DC Comics, 1970). Just three issues away from Jack Kirby's radical transformation of Jimmy Olsen into a component of the revolutionary Fourth World series, the long-running spinoff title gets weird on its own terms: A super-computer promises news reporter Olsen a scoop involving Superman. Superman appears somewhat annoyed to find himself summoned, "just as I was about to start on a vital mission..." The slightly off-model Superman faces show signs of retouching, likely by the series' lead artist, Curt Swan. Costanza's art includes some bizarre foreshortening of Superman's figure in flight. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Moderate toning, cropped corners, and minor adhesive staining. Very Good condition.
