Item Description
5.5" tall wood composition figure was designed by legendary Superman artist Wayne Boring to promote Superman to DC Comics' distributors and retailers. 1942. This is fully-painted version which is much rarer than scarce brown and red version (see following item #2072). Nicely detailed, painted as Superman appeared in comic books. Aside from 3/8" sliver off backside of base (which is not visible when viewed from front) and figure has just the tiniest traces of minor aging/wear w/no touch-ups/repairs and is about as nice as these come. Still displays Exc. Our last example of this full color variety sold for $4,545. Franco Toscanini Collection.
