1974 SUPERMAN Puzzle Original Art! Dick Giordano! DC Comics!

Here's a rare glimpse at some mid-70s merchandise art, from DC Comics! Created for a series of Superman and Batman puzzles (sold in cans and boxes), here is the Man of Steel by long-time comic artist Dick Giordano! Dick was known not only as a great solo artist, but also as penciller Neal Adams' main inker in the 70s! Dick brings much of the same sense of realism, movement, and drama to his OWN art, as in the work he did when teamed with Neal! The puzzle debuted around the same time as the shark-mania inspired by the JAWS book and film! Smart! Click to enlarge and enjoy!
