    Description

    Superman (Columbia, 1948). One Sheet (28" X 42") Advance.
    This rarely seen advance one sheet pictures dynamic artwork of action hero Superman flying above his three comic magazine features. The poster advertises the appearance of the famed superhero in his first live action serial starring Kirk Alyn as Superman and Noel Neill as Lois Lane. Superman had previously appeared in an acclaimed series of cartoons from Fleisher Studios. Republic Pictures then tried to attain the rights to make a live action serial but negotiations fell through and they optioned Superman competitor Captain Marvel instead. This fantastic one sheet is making its Heritage debut. A rare treat for serial and comics fans alike! Touchup has been applied to the folds, chips in the corners, a chip in "comics," a chip in each of the borders, a tear in the right border, and pinholes in the borders. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
