    Frank Harry - Little Boy Blue Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, circa 1948). Who was little Boy Blue? He was Tommy Rogers, aged 12, and he donned the crime fighting costume of Little Boy Blue in Sensation Comics #1, in 1942. Tommy launched his crime-fighting career when he overheard his father, district attorney Dan Rogers, talking about the troubles he was having prosecuting a mobster, since his key witness had gone missing. Tommy was inspired by reading about the adventures of Wildcat, in that same issue of Sensation! Likewise Wildcat had been inspired by reading about Green Lantern -- weird! Little Boy's final appearance in Sensation Comics was in issue #82, 1948, and this splash has a production note, "written off 9-30-49." DC staffers were ordered to cut up older pages in the 1970s and the canny employees did as ordered, but they carefully cut each page between the panel gutters when possible and saved the art from oblivion. The image area of this page measures 13" x 18". The lower tier was cut from the page and later conjoined with tape on the back of the art; otherwise the art is in Very Good condition.
