This is the Original Art for the absolutely beautiful Cover of ACTION COMICS (Starring SUPERGIRL) #685 (Jan. 1993). This is one of only a handful of Action Comics issues that spotlight Supergirl and is Part 2 (of 8) of the classic "Funeral For A Friend" storyline. This Cover was penciled and inked by Jackson "Butch" Guice and is an homage to the world famous Cover of Action Comics #1 (June 1938) by Joe Shuster. This issue had 3 printings in 1993, each with variations on the cover coloring (see "additional images").

Superman - created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
Supergirl (Kara Zor-El / Linda Lee Danvers) - created by Otto Binder, Al Plastino and Mort Weisinger.
Supergirl (Matrix) - created by John Byrne.

ACTION COMICS, SUPERMAN and SUPERGIRL are copyright (c) & trademark DC Entertainment.

This has to be my favorite piece from your impressive collection. I think I saw this on Mike Burkey's site at one point and was drooling over it. Luckily, I was able to land a pretty cool Supergirl piece myself. Congrats on being able to add it to your collection!!!
