    Description

    Dick Sprang - Recreation "The Joker's Millions" (undated). Dick Sprang began work on Batman during World War II, beginning with Batman #17. Consequently, a generation of readers and collectors think of Sprang as "the" Batman artist. Because vintage Sprang artwork exists in such small numbers, it is quite an occasion when a piece surfaces for sale. Panel pages come on the market infrequently, but the idea of owning a vintage cover or splash is a pipe dream. Luckily, Sprang did a series of recreations in the 1990s. Even more fortuitous for us, the old master never lost his touch. The work is executed to exacting standards, with amazing detail. This piece, rendered in mixed media on illustration board, is a genuinely finished painting, with vivid colors and a forceful presence. In superb condition, this piece measures approximately 20" x 15".
