    Neal Adams and George Tuska - Original Splash Page Art for Challengers of the Unknown #74 (DC, 1970). DC did some innovative projects in the 1970s. This Challengers and Deadman crossover employed the talents of Denny O'Neil as writer, and Neal Adams and George Tuska as artists. This page has a great Adams panel of Deadman, and the rest of the panels were drawn by veteran George Tuska, who has autographed the page under the world balloon in the first panel. The art paper is 11" x 16" with an image area of 10" x 13.25". The condition of the art is excellent, with the original Deadman logo stat, and minimal use of white-out. A small piece of paper is out of the right upper corner, outside the art area. Some minor blue pencil editorial and lettering correction lines are apparent. There is no indicia and no glue stain where the indicia would have been affixed. This is a great DC Bronze Age art example from a fondly remembered story. Neal Adams Deadman!
