    George Perez - Original Art for The History of the DC Universe #1, Inside Front Cover (DC, 1986). In 1985, a series was launched that would forever change the face of the DC Universe. Still debated and discussed in fan circles, Crisis on Infinite Earths, by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, made changes in the company's nearly 50 year continuity that are still being felt. The changes were so far-reaching that DC decided to issue a two-issue Prestige-format series outlining the new continuity. The History of the DC Universe was the result. The original art offered here, by legendary artist George Perez, was produced as the inside front cover of the hardcover volume that collected the two-issue mini-series. Featuring the Harbinger, a pivotal character in Crisis, this stunning piece measures approximately 12" x 17.5" overall and is in excellent condition. Crisis-related art is quite collectible, especially those pieces rendered by Perez himself. Don't miss out on this history-making opportunity!
