Action Comics 812 Variant sketch cover from 2004
A Different Superman.
We open with Kal-El on his motorbike, zooming home from work as one of Krypton’s many low-level officials. He is musing about why people always dream of flying. At home with his wife Lyla, an alien, he tries to make breakfast but burns it. She’s just showered and watches him for a while before they discuss how frustrated he is with his mundane life.
On his way to work, he’s followed by alien renegades who start to chase him, trying to run him off the road. When Kal-El manages to get one of the rebels to turn over, the bike flies off and smashes through the biosphere, exposing him to yellow sunlight. His eyes flare up and he fires his heat-ray at them. He has become strong, stronger than any other living creature and he doesn’t know why.
This is one whole complete Action Comics 812 Sketch Variant Comic Book sealed and mounted in a black box frame. This excellent cover is by late great artist Micheal Turner.
In comic books, a variant cover (sometimes variant edition) refers to an issue of a comic book printed with multiple covers, each with unique cover art. This kind of cover art should be proudly displayed.
The edition would make an excellent gift. The ultimate in Superman home decor.
The frame contains the complete comic book sealed and protected in a collectors grade archival bag. It has been chosen for exceptional clarity. The bag is PVC and acid-free.
The comic is mounted in a contemporary black beveled box frame. It features a classic white inlay and glass front. Fittings are included for hanging the frame.
Some comic books do increase in value over time. This could be one of them.
This is a perfect gift for any fan of comic books or art. It would look awesome on any wall where it can be appreciated.
Superman may get his powers from the direct light of our sun, I would not, however, recommend hanging this art is direct sun light in case it fades.
Frame size: 32.5 x 42.5 x 2.7cm
Fittings Included: Hooks for hanging portrait
