    Description

    Wayne Boring Superman Sunday Comic Strip #507 Original Art dated 7-17-49 (McClure Newspaper Syndicate, 1949). Boring became a definitive Superman artist by degrees -- originally ghosting for Joe Shuster (to lessen the co-creator's workload) and imbuing Superman with an athletic grace and an expressive intensity beyond Shuster's stocky conception. This gem is peak-period Boring, subjecting Superman to a Gulliver-like captivity at the hands of a society of tiny, angry men. The emotional surges are strong throughout, with a kinetic energy to match the situation. Boring gets a (signed) byline -- an amenity lacking in his Superman comic-book stories. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 20.75" x 14.5". Excellent condition.
