SUPERMAN: 40th ANNIVERSARY in METROPOLIS,
Metropolis, IL adopted Superman forty years ago.
This dramatic signage was created by Peter
Poplaski in commemoration of that anniversary.
The flying Superman is based on Siegel and
Shuster’s original version (note the small “S”
on the chest and the modern version lower
right). Everything her is original art including
the challenging large “S” trademark—Poplaski
NEVER uses photostats or photocopies.
His lettering—everything—is always
original. This is an unusual piece never seen
outside Superman’s “home town.” Might be
especially desired by an Illinois native. Comes
with a same size color proof with Poplaski’s
hand-colored printer guide.
15 inches (44.5 x 38 cm). Ink on
heavy Bristol board. Excellent condition.
Price: $900 (includes
the hand-colored proof)
Provenance: Warranted to be
authentic. Poplaski is exclusively represented by
