    Description

    Curt Swan - Original Splash Page Art for World's Finest #178 (DC, 1968). Think you can't be captivated by an "Imaginary Story" (yeah, we know, they're all imaginary)? Then tell us you're not intrigued by the question posed by Batman in this beautiful scene-setting Curt Swan splash: If the Man of Steel lost his powers for good, would he try to make a comeback without them? In other words, is it the "super" or the "man" that makes the hero? It's a question that's been asked in one way or another throughout Superman's long career, and Swan's lovely art (the inker may be Bob Brown) brings the question to life in a manner that will have you wishing you could turn the page to find out the answer. This is a 10" x 13" image (with space for indicia) on an approximately 11" x 17" page.
