    PETER POPLASKI. The Atomic Age Superman: 1956-1959 (IDW Publ., 2016) 

    Back cover
    (Lot of 2, with bonus art). Three interlinked vignettes showing the normally invulnerable hero in unthinkable situations: Superman powerless, Superman shot, and Superman imprisoned! On the reverse side is an art bonus: a fully inked Superman + penciled logo from an unfinished Atomic Age Superman cover!  $1,850

    Medium/Size/Condition: India ink on heavy Bristol board measuring 15” wide x 22” high (38.1 x 55.9 cm). Signed and dated (2016) with creation history on reverse side. There are red ink lines on Superman to indicate to the colorist where shading begins and ends. The saucer pilots, police officer and gun blast have cut marks where Poplaski removed black ink with a blade and some White-Out has been applied. He same applies to potions of the atomic ring imprisoning Superman and a few other tiny areas. The lot includes Poplaski’s color guide: color pencils on a photocopy (two pieces of papers taped together) of the finished art, close to the same size as the original. Both items are in excellent condition, other than the small cuts and White-Out noted.
