Mike Grell/Chris Warner/Mark Beachum/Jim Lee art; c.1989; image size 32" x 20"Acquiring commissions from artists is as old as conventions themselves, it's one of the things that connects fans to creators. When people go above and beyond is when these drawings become truly special. This fan, who assembled this over several conventions in the late 1980s, had the wherewithal to come prepared with a huge board on which he had artists depict DC's earliest characters as they appeared at the beginning. Fawcett's Captain Marvel (who would eventually join DC's ranks) by Mike Grell, Batman by Chris Warner, Wonder Woman by Mark Beachum, and Superman by Jim Lee, in what is purportedly the first time he was ever commissioned the Man of Steel. Each artist truly embraced the concept and provided a wonderful illustration that both honors the character and shows off each of their individual artistic quirks. A truly wonderful and unique piece that would be a spectacular addition to any collection. Pencil on board. Art is in excellent condition. Signed by each artist beneath their contribution.
Comic book illustrator Jim Lee is the editorial director of WildStorm Studios (which he founded in 1992) and the artist for many of DC Comics' bestselling comic book and graphic novels, including All Star Batman and Robin, Batman: Hush, and Superman: For Tomorrow. Prior to DC, he was one of the founding fathers of Image Comics and best known for his run on the X-Men for Marvel Comics during which he co-created such characters as Gambit and Agent Zero.
