DescriptionJoe Shuster - Superman Pin Up Original Art (undated). What could be more super-spectacular than a full color pin up of Superman by his co-creator Joe Shuster? Full color Shuster specialty pieces are a true rarity. This superb drawing is made even more remarkable, because unlike most specialty portraits of the Man of Steel which were done in profile, this one is face-front! The Super chest emblem is prominently displayed in all its glory. No other artist could quite capture the Joe Shuster touch on Superman, or match his heroic portrayals of the joyful exuberance of this American icon. Shuster drew this portrait in 1979, when he was considered "legally blind," and working with the aid of a jeweler's loupe. It took him 40 hours to render this portrait during a Texas comics convention visit. The result was a museum-worthy and timeless work of American art. This colored pencil drawing has an image area that measures approximately 16.5" x 22", and the art is in Excellent condition. Joe Shuster has signed the drawing at the lower left. This will be a treasured showpiece for any Joe Shuster and Superman collector, so remember to bid accordingly!

I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.View More Testimonials
