The Joker looms over the Dynamic Duo. Superman stands tall, in front of an iconic American shield, an eagle perched on his shoulder. Two images that stand out as milestones for not only the Golden Age of comics, but the medium as a whole. While artist Jerry Robinson – the legendary artist who played a vital role in the early appearances of Batman characters, The Joker, Robin, Alfred, and The Penguin – has a career full of similar high points, his cover to DETECTIVE COMICS #69 spotlight the skill, verve and craftsmanship that make him a living comics legend. The cover to SUPERMAN #14, by artist Fred Ray, which Robinson has owned for years, is also a major piece of comic book history. And they can be yours. For the first time ever, the original art boards for these two classic covers will be put up for auction. Starting Wednesday, 11/10 until 12/1, as part of ComicConnect.com’s November/December Event Auction. What more is there to know? Two of the most sought-after images in comic book history stand within the reach of one or two lucky buyers. As some of you may have seen in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, the auction is a historic opportunity and a chance to celebrate the work of a comic book legend in Jerry Robinson.
