    Joe Shuster Studio - Superman Inked Sketch Original Art (c. 1944). The Man of Steel strikes a heroic pose in this unusual fully inked sketch. The art is drawn in ink over graphite on a 6" x 9.5" piece of Hotel Dennis stationery, attached to an 11" x 14" page that has a hand-written account of how this was done for a bellboy while Joe Shuster and another gentleman (possibly Shuster staff artist Wayne Boring; the owner at the time thought it was Jerry Siegel) were staying at the St. Petersburg, Florida resort; a 1992 newspaper clipping from The Los Angeles Times reporting Mr. Shuster's passing is also attached. The art is in Good condition, with soiling, multiple folds, and a small tear along the right side of the letter. The art is not signed.
