...opposite results. And it seems that when black ink is laid over the surface of scratchboard it causes the board to warp slightly as the ink dries, as well as leaving all remaining black areas rather shiny. So what you have described is not damage at all, just the different appearance resulting from King's use of a different support than what you are used to from your other Gasoline Alley strips.

Hi Richard, I was thinking that you had commented about something in connection with my Gasoline Alley strip from the day before this one of your own, but since that wasn't correct, I might as well comment myself and hopefully help you with your second condition concern. Of course, you may very well know this, but I guess it doesn't hurt even if you do. The strips from much of 1939 are on scratchboard, which is heavier than the illustration paper used by King in earlier and later years. King would cover most of the surface with heavy black ink, leaving only those large areas which he wished to remain white uninked, and then would scratch away details of white in the blackened areas, working in reverse from black to white highlights or even fairly large ares of white -- a technique similar to that used by engravers in creating prints but with Cont.

Timothy Finney said:
The expressive faces Swan/Klein give Superman in the first four panels sells this scene perfectly.

Hi Timothy, And a large part of the appeal this page held for me was the resemblance of those head shots to the ones shown on the cover of Action Comics No. 317 (the story of "Superman's Rainbow Face!", October 1964), which was another one of the earliest comics I bought after I actually began to collect, as opposed to accumulate comics now and then -- the third issue of Action Comics I ever collected, to be precise. BTW, thank you for all the nice comments over the years. I've been meaning to say that for ages, or at least way too many years.

Lovely, and I was just sure that even half hadn't gone through. Whatever... drawings out of scenes and sell them. But Disney put together a panel to decide which could be sold, and they limited sales to only in-betweens, with not a single one of the usually more finished extreme drawings ever being released, officially. That's why you could chose from a lot of nice in-betweens in San Diego on the one occasion (probably the summer of 1984) when Russ and Bruce bothered dealing with Disney over the drawings. Little did anyone at Disney know that other licensees were taking out great extremes, probably many from the very scenes Russ and Bruce had pulled out, only to be denied permission to sell.

Hi Richard, If you haven't already found an answer to your question, it's not a rough but an in-between animation drawing, and the cel would have been traced directly from the drawing. Cochran and Hamilton, who had connections with Disney by virtue of their license for making prints after Carl Barks' paintings, approached Disney about selling some of the many, many animation drawings which the studio had always retained -Disney didn't care about cels, which were largely tossed out, since they figured they could make new cels whenever they wanted if they kept the drawings. Russ and Bruce thought that they could just pull great Good Grief, to be continued.

I'll join in the chorus. This is my favorite type of page of all comic book art -- I'm as envious as Scott Dunbier and it brings out the same sort of memories and very deep feelings in me as it does in you and Richard Martines. As Scott might recall, I told him on the very day we met that I would pay ANYTHING for a Legion page from the first run in Adventure Comics, to which he responded in a quiet voice, as he moved closer so that I could hear: "Don't tell any other dealer that; they'll take advantage of you." Not that I wasn't already aware of what Scott was kindly telling me, but I really didn't care, especially if being gouged would have allowed a page such as this one to come home with me. I still don't have a page from that first Adventure run, so, hint, hint, if you for some reason ever want to part with it, try gouging me first! Thanks for sharing and for showing that such pages actually do exist, even after I had pretty much concluded that all were destroyed long ago.

I can remember as if it were yesterday every detail surrounding my buying this comic book -- where I found it, how happy I was walking to the car afterwards, and reading it in the back seat of my parents' car during the hour long trip my family made immediately after the purchase. And even though I was only 9 years old and had only begun to collect comics a few months earlier, I doubt that I will ever forget the very panels of this story which appealed to me the most back then, including the fourth one on this great page, with Jor-El, Lara, and baby Kal-El. Thank you for bringing my memories back to life, even if you posted this some time ago. CAF pieces have legs, I guess, at least some do when I finally come across them.
