Mark Evanier talks about Lichtenstein today in his blog, mentioning that there is a museum exhibit right across the street from a Russ heath comic book convention appearance.

Some additional info from The New York Times by way of the Supeman Home Page about that Warhol swipe from Schaffenberger .


March 6, 2005: Warhol Superman Painting in Multi-Million Dollar Collection  

A March 3rd New York Times article about Wall Street trader Steven A. Cohen included a sidebar showing images of "prominent works of art" which Cohen spent "hundreds of millions of dollars" purchasing. Among the items pictured (which include a $52 million Jackson Pollock painting titled "No. 8, 1950" and a $20 million Monet painting of "Waterlilies") is a $25 million Andy Warhol painting titled "Superman" from 1960.
The painting appears to be based on a comic-book panel of Superman blowing out a fire, complete with the word "PUFF!"

This is not the only painting Warhol did of Superman, but it's certainly interesting to note the dollar value of the painting. Supermanís success in the world of fine art is a distinction that is most likely unique to him alone.

So my question is did Andy ever pay DC Comics anything for the use of their copyrighted character?  :?

Quote from: "nightwing"

Quote from: "Klar Ken T5477"
Think the title of that title was "The Girl Who Was Lois Lane's Double" altho exposure to Green K has weakened my powers of total recall. Uh...I mean sea water!  :wink:
Quote from: "nightwing"
This seems to be the issue where Van-Zee and Sylvia wed.  Also listed in some places as the first appearance of Sylvia.

Well, I tracked down a copy of this comic (the one nightwing links to right above) and scanned it in, but the panel in question is not in it, nor does it contain a story called "The Girl Who Was Lois Lane's Double," which, based on the two panels above, seems to actually be a sequel to this issue.

Maybe if DC went after the Warhol estate, they could get enough money to buy out the Siegels...
