    Description

    Gil Kane and Kevin Nowlan Superman: Blood of My Ancestors Splash Page Original Art (DC, 2003). Kane's unique vision of Superman gets a workout in this introductory page from an unusual one-shot title, published posthumously. The gigantic menace thus depicted recalls the cosmic horrors of H.P. Lovecraft. While Kane's earlier works are fondly remembered by fans, the artist was clearly inspired by this concept (he also served as co-writer) to turn out a bang-up job! Nowlan's tight inking job completes the powerful image. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10.25" x 15.75". Excellent condition.
