    Dick Giordano Limited Collectors' Edition #C-39 "Secret Origins Super-Villains" Centerspread 2-Page Pin-Up Original Art (DC, 1975). Titled "Rogue's Gallery of Super-Villains", this two-page center spread pull-out poster features 32 of DC's most dastardly bad guys (O.K., granted, Terra-Man and Aunt Minerva are in there, but the rest of them are really bad). This is a classic image in many ways. One of the most interesting is that master-artist Dick Giordano mimicked the styles of several artists on specific characters. You can see the Carmine Infantino influence easily on Captain Boomerang and Gorilla Grodd. The Joker's image is a loving tribute to the Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson poster from 1966. Poison Ivy is a tribute to her first appearance on the cover of Batman #181. How many tributes can you find in this image? Crafted in ink over graphite on 23" x 16" Bristol board. The board is toned, with a small stain by Catwoman's cat o' nine tails. Dr. Sivana is an original art paste-up. The piece has some minor creases on the corners. In Very Good condition.
