    PETER POPLASKI.  Atomic Age Superman: 1953-1956 (IDW Publ., 2015) 

    Back cover
    (Lot of 2). Four terrific panels featuring Superman vs. The Flying Horse, The Prankster, The Phantom Thief, and Mop-Up Moby. $1,500

    Medium/Size/Condition: India ink on heavy Bristol board measuring 15” wide x 22” high (38.1 x 55.9 cm). Signed and dated (2015) in the lower right, plus a 2nd signature at the top with the creative history (drawn in Crumb’s village in France). A few small areas, mostly 4th panel, have shallow cut marks where Poplaski removed black ink with a blade. The “explosion” at the bottom with roughed-in bar code, IDW & DC logos, etc. is simply a layout suggestion to the publisher, IDW: it is on a hinge that can be lifted & removed from the original beneath. The lot includes Poplaski’s color guide: color pencils on a photocopy (10 x 13”) of the finished art. Both items are in excellent condition, other than the small cuts noted.

    [Front cover sold earlier]


    Note: on all original Poplaski covers the Superman logo and all lettering (including reverses) are hand-drawn. No Photostats or Xeroxes or reproductions of any kind: 100% original art.
