    Curt Swan and Dan Adkins - Superman #316, page 1 Original Art (DC, 1977). Superman is in a world of hurt as bad boy Metallo busts his chops with a left hook, while flashing a bit of Green Kryptonite! Welcome to the house of pain, Kal-El. Dan Adkins' inks add a delightful sheen to Curt Swan's knockout of a splash page scene. For many baby-boomers, Swan's Superman is the version of choice, and this page is a prime example of why. The art is in Very Good condition, and the page retains all of its original title logo and type stats. There are notes to the production staff along the left, right, and top borders. The indicia have been taped on, carefully attached to the back of the art in a manner that does not detract at all from the eye-appeal of this great piece. The paper measures 12.75" x 17.5", with an image area of 10" x 13". The Man of Steel may be down, but he's not out, and when the final bell rings, the smart money says he'll be the only one standing.
