    Dave Cockrum - Superboy #197, Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1973). DC editor, Murray Boltinoff, created the team of writer, Cary Bates, and artist, Dave Cockrum, and by this issue of Superboy the Legion had the lead in every issue. Cockrum developed a new look for the Legion that the fans enjoyed. Although he left to develop a project for Marvel (Giant -Size X-Men #1) just one month shy of a year after he started drawing the Legion, Cockrum had created a fan following new Legion artist, Mike Grell, found difficult (but not impossible) to overcome. Here is page one of Cary Bates' tale, "Timber Wolf Dead Hero, Live Executioner!," with pencils and inks by Dave Cockrum. The image area measures 10" x 15". There is a bit of glue staining around the title type and word balloon paste-ups; otherwise the condition is Very Good.
