Description

Superman/Batman #26 Variant Cover by Michael Turner.

Before he finished writing Superman/Batman #26, Jeph Loeb's son, Sam, died on June 17, 2005, at the age of 17, after a three-year battle with cancer. The issue was supposed to be Sam's DC writing debut and was to be illustrated by Pat Lee. Jeph, along with 25 other comic book professionals and artists who had known Sam, worked on the issue, scripting or penciling individual pages. Marvel Comics allowed John Cassaday and Joss Whedon to work on the issue despite their exclusive contracts. All 26 contributors donated their fees and royalties for the issue to the Sam Loeb College Scholarship Fund.

In "The Boys Are Back in Town" (issue #26), Superman and Batman send Superboy and Robin to visit the Toyman in Japan because he has not been heard from in a while. The issue was released shortly after Superboy's death in Infinite Crisis #6, and Robin's eulogy of Superboy serves as both a framing sequence and as a meditation on the author's passing.

Signed by Jeph Loeb & Michael Turner.

Titans' Tower.
My father recently passed away at the young age of 86. He was my father, my mother, my brother, my buddy...my whole family. I thought of nothing but him for the past couple months. Even shut down the Titans' Tower CAF for a while in mourning of him. But I figure he would want me to pick myself off my butt and get on with my life.
Here to you dad! Without you I would have never exist, and hence this Titans' Tower gallery would have never exist. This Batman/Superman #26 cover and issue was made in honor of a courageous boy name Sam Loeb who lost his battle to this dreadful disease. So inturn I got this "ICONIC GRAIL" of a cover to honor you dad, for everything you have done for and given to me. And I will dedicate the rest of my life to be the best of what you have taught me in life.
I love you dad...
