    Superman Cartoon Stock (Paramount, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Just after Superman made his dramatic appearance in Action Comics in 1938 and rose quickly to fame, he became the subject of Hollywood speculation. Republic Pictures wanted to turn the Man of Steel into a serial, but Paramount got the rights first and decided to create a series of cartoons instead. Under the leadership of Max and Dave Fleischer, Paramount turned out 17 cartoons and those shorts are considered some of the best work to emerge from Paramount's cartoon division. Paramount did not issue individual one sheets for the series, but instead, opted to create this stock one sheet with a blank imprint area where the individual cartoon titles could be written in or printed. The poster has a very slight fold separation at the top of the vertical fold with a bit more separation along the bottom quarter of the vertical fold. This section has been reinforced on the verso with archival tape. There was also a tiny hole with paper loss at the lower center point and in Superman's foot. Both of these areas had small bits of paper added, colored and reinforced with tape on the verso. There is also some tape reinforcement of the other center points. None of these issues are distracting and the poster is one of the best examples of this one sheet we've ever seen. It remains one of the most sought after posters in the hobby and has crossover appeal to both movie poster, animation and comic book collectors. Fine/Very Fine.
