Silver Age Cover Proofs for Sale Online!

Some of Julius Schwartz's Silver Age cover proofs are available for sale at this site.

These one-of-a-kind Printer’s Proof’s were originally sent to Schwartz for his final approval, before their commercial print run. The covers feature artwork from such icons as Nick Cardy, Murphy Anderson, Neal Adams, Carmine Infantino, Mike Kaluta and many, many more!

When The Hero Initiative approached Tate about the idea of showcasing this collection in our upstairs gallery space, Bear and Bird, he jumped at the chance to share these unusual and rare collectibles with South Florida comic book fans. “These covers are a part of DC Comics history, they are totally unique and cool,” said Tate Ottati. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer a really great gallery event for our customers and to also help out The Hero Initiative with their very worthwhile cause.”
All the covers in this collection will be available for sale at the price of $100 and include a unique Certificate of Authenticity.
The proceeds will go to a good cause:

The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterday’s creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for fans to give back something to the people who have given them so much enjoyment.
Since its inception, The Hero Initiative has had the good fortune to grant over $500,000 to the comic book veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today. For more information, visit www.heroinitiative.org or call 626-676-6354.
 The first page of the gallery is here.  There are some pretty spectacular covers there.
