    Description

    Superman Cartoon Stock (Paramount, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41"). When Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created their "strange visitor from another planet," they could little have known that they were giving birth to one of the greatest pop cultural icons of the twentieth century. Since his debut in 1938, Superman has been featured in comic books, comic strips, cartoons, movies, TV shows and more around the world, and is now one of the most recognizable fictional characters in history. Superman's first appearance on the silver screen was in a brilliant series of cartoons produced by the legendary Fleischer Studios; in fact, the very first of the series was nominated for an Academy Award in 1942 for Best Short Subject, Cartoons. This beautiful stock sheet, featuring dynamic artwork by the Shuster studios, shows only some fold wear and minor crossfold issues, as well as pinholes around the borders and minor edge chipping, but all of these considerations have been addressed by professional restoration and linen backing. These stock sheets are quite rare, and highly prized amongst both comic collectors and poster collectors for their brilliant colors and great images of the Man of Steel. Very Fine on Linen.
