    Description

    Irwin Hasen (attributed) - Unpublished Green Lantern Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, circa 1949). As the Golden Age came to a close, Green Lantern's title was canceled with issue #38 in 1949. The splash page to "The Secret of Happy Valley" has a production note, "written off 9-30-49." As with other written-off stories from this era, this page was rescued from certain doom by DC staffers who, when ordered to cut the original art pages in half, did so rather carefully. This page was cut at the top of page, three and a half inches from the top panel border, mostly through the plane's wing and tail. A story number, GL37C, may indicate that the yarn was slated to appear in the third story slot of Green Lantern #37. Perhaps it was bumped by the new feature, Streak. The image area of the art is 13" x 18". Other than the page being cut into two pieces, the art is in Very Good condition.
