    Ramona Fradon and Charles Paris - Metamorpho #2 Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1965). From the wild, wacky, wonderful, way-out era of the swinging sixties comes Bob Haney's "Fab Freak of 1,001 changes." Metamorpho the Element Man was a "normal, green-blooded, all-American freak," and this spectacular splash page by Ramona Fradon and Charles Paris spotlights the entire cast of characters -- Rex Mason, fated to became Metamorpho; Simon Stagg, the terrible tycoon; Sapphire Stagg, Rex's gal-pal; Java, the living throw-back in man's evolutionary chain; and this issue's villain, Nicholas Balkan. Telstar was all the rage back in the day; the Tornados had a hit 1962 rock instrumental with that title, and Bob Haney must have jumped in on the Space Race craze! The image area of this splash is 13" x 17.5", and it still has all of its original type and stats. There are a few paste-on and taped-in lettering corrections; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. Any collector would certainly have a hard time topping this magnificent Metamorpho splash -- snap it up!
