    Description

    Jim Mooney Batman #56 Story Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1949-50). This is one of the earliest Batman splash pages we have ever had. It is the first page of the back-up story "A Greater Detective Than Batman!", and the full page splash features Batman and Robin the boy wonder. Although signed "Bob Kane" in the artwork, it was produced by Jim Mooney, who personalized and signed it in the bottom margin. The logo and header are a printed paste-up stat image that has become wrinkled and has a couple of slight tears in the edges of the cape. The page is produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with a nice large image area of 13.25" x 19" (counting header). There is slight overall tanning and a minor stain on the men in the background. It is in Very Good condition, however.
