    Kieron Dwyer and Hilary Barta - Superman: The Dark Side #1, pages 8 and 9 Original Art (DC, 1998). Based on Jack Kirby's seminal DC Comics series, The New Gods, Superman: The Dark Side is an Elseworld rumination on the hypothetical addition of Kal-El into the New Gods mythos. Sent out from his dying homeworld of Krypton, baby Kal-El's rocket is diverted from its course towards Earth, landing on Apokolips. There, he is found and raised by Darkseid, and molded into a killing machine for the battle between Apokolips and its sister world, New Genesis. This two-page splash was drawn by penciler Kieron Dwyer and inked by Hilary Barta. It features baby Kal-El meeting Darkseid for the first time. The work is stupendous and has to be seen up close to be truly appreciated. The art has an image area of 20" x 16" and is in Excellent condition.
