    Description

    Curt Swan and Kurt Schaffenberger Action Comics #442 Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1974). The splash page for the story "The Midnight Murder Show" was largely similar to the cover... or maybe that is the other way around. This layout reminds us of Carmine Infantino's style, but the art is all Swan and Schaffenberger. The page was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15" (including the paste-up indicia). The Action and Superman logos in the top margin are discolored stat paste-ups, with a bit of glue residue near them. The Action logo is stripped-in from the reverse side. There is a small hole in the word "The" in the title, and a staple in the top margin. Signed by Curt Swan in the image area. In Good condition.
