    Joe Shuster - Superman Sketch Original Art (1979). Joe Shuster draws the profile of his famous co-creation, Superman, the Man of Steel. In the 1930s, the world's greatest comic book hero, Superman, was brought to life by two high school students from Cleveland, Ohio, writer Jerry Siegel, and artist, Joe Shuster. This fine graphite drawing is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jim Hambrick, curator of the SuperMuseum, and reads in part, "This special piece of history is from the archives of the SuperMuseum in Metropolis, Illinois. These are very limited and treasured pieces in Superman history." The image area is 10.5" x 13.5", and the art is in Excellent condition. Joe Shuster has signed the art in the lower left. The Man of Steel, drawn by his co-creator -- 'nuff said.
