Item Description
7.5x23" Craftint artboard w/"Craftint Singletone" shading accents has four panels of original pen and ink art for "Superman" daily strip #2262, 1946. Art was penciled by legendary "Superman" Golden and Silver Age comic book and comic strip artist Wayne Boring w/inks by Stan Kaye. Art features Superman in three panels, racing while looking up address in crook's address book, resting on telephone pole while using his X-Ray Vision to look into scene featured in third panel, where armed crook wishes traffic would let up so as to allow address book owner to arrive so he could kill Lois Lane, who is tied up. Last panel features Superman bursting through wall to rescue Lois. Top margin has "Sudden Visit" title in blue pencil. Top of first panel has McClure Newspaper Syndicate copyright paste-over strip. Vertical fold at center w/artboard having some handling creases at right. Entire artboard has scattered aging w/bottoms of each panel having inked line w/scattered glue staining below line, as something was at one point attached to artboard. This has since been removed and has not damaged art. Second panel has smudged thumbprint across Superman's legs. Faint moisture staining across third panel. Pinholes at corners. Fine overall but would still display nicely if matted and framed.
