Check out this very nice late BRONZE AGE "OVER-SIZED" DC battle page, which was penciled by the great Keith Giffen, and inked by popular Amazing Spider-Man inker: Larry Mahlstedt, from the story titled: "Here a Villain, There a Villain..." This nice page features Shadow Lass, Chameleon Boy, and Ultra Boy all battling Ol-Ver and the New Legion of Super-Villains! Art is drawn oversized with an actual drawn art image measuring 11 by 16.4 inches, on a 13 by 19.5 inch art board. It was 1984. The vast majority of comic-books were sold in bookstores or on news-stands (Google it) or at places like 7-11. But time's they were a'changin. There was suddenly something springing up all over the country called "local comic book stores." This would lead to something called "Direct Only Market." Books sold directly to the point-of-sale meant no middle-man distributor. No returned covers for unsold books. More profit for the publishers. DC wanted to get their feet wet with this possible gold mine. So they chose two of their best-selling titles to lead the vanguard by "Going Direct." New Teen Titans and Legion of Super-Heroes would each be split into two separate titles: the ongoing newsprint versions, and a new title with higher-end, better quality paper. This paper was called Baxter paper, and these comics became known as "The Baxter series. BRONZE AGE DC Super hero pages are getting increasingly hard to find, so don't miss out on a great opportunity here to own a nice late Bronze Age 1984 DC superhero page!
