    Joe Shuster, Carl Barks, and others Sketchbook Original Art (1982-92). A fan's black hardcover 8.5" x 11" sketchbook, the kind one would take around at a ComicCon and try to get pros to scribble off a quick sketch or two -- right? Well, as Paul Harvey used to say, and now for the rest of the story! The fan in question, named Gary, managed to get some of biggest legends of the business to fill a page (or two). Artists contributing sketches included Joe Shuster (Superman profile pencil sketch), Milton Caniff (Steve Canyon), Bill Woggon (Katy Keene's Sis), Dave Cockrum (X-Men's Storm), Sergio Aragon├ęs (Groo), Carl Barks (inked and colored Uncle Scrooge page), Gil Kane (Batman), Mike Grell (Superman and Supergirl), Bill Justice (Donald Duck), Ward Kimball (Mickey Mouse), and Marty Nodell (Golden Age Green Lantern and, on a separate page, Doiby Dickles). There are also sketches or autographs from Will Eisner, Scott Shaw, Boris Vallejo, Marv Wolfman, Disney animators Ken Anderson and Willie Ito, plus Herb Ryman (Disneyland designer) and John Hench (Disney design artist), and more. Only 22 pages in this book were used, but what a wonderful 22! The pages, and the sketchbook are all in Excellent condition.
