Is that from a published story?  If I didn't know better, I'd say that was a Wayne Boring Superboy-Prime story!

Certainly looks Crisis-related, especially from what I was able to decipher from the faintly-printed reporter's dialogue:
                   
                    Astronomers have
                    detected a large cloud
                    in space heading toward
                    Earth at fantastic speed.
                    Spectroscopic analysis
                    indicates it is of a virulent
                    nature.  Calls are being
                    sent out for the Justice --

Very curious.  Is this artwork evidence that another Superboy-Prime story was cancelled in mid-production? These scenes do not match up with any of the DCCP #87 or Superman #414 stories, (note the "Page 3") though it MIGHT be possible that sequences in Superman #414 were shuffled to include an earlier Superman/Superboy-Prime panel.  On the other hand, by this point in time the antimatter wall had already reached Earth-1 (remember Supergirl rescuing the pilot during her "pep talk" with Batgirl?), and the reporter can't be from Earth-Prime.

And Wayne Boring had been let go from DC in 1967, long before the Crisis, so if it IS his artwork then that "Superboy" CAN'T be "Prime" and the "virulent space cloud" isn't antimatter but a very eerie coincidence.  Could this be a "forgotten" Earth-2 Superman / Earth-1 SuperBOY adventure that occurred long before Barry Allen met Jay Garrick?

I certainly would like to know more about this artwork.

I just sent an email to the guy I bought it from and see if he knows.
Boring did do that Secret Origin special of the golden age Superman in the mid late 80s.

It looks like a WGBS camera as well --at least Bronze Age, no?

I was checking the GCD last nite and any Boring post his departure from DC circa late 60s-early 70s was for Marvel EXCEPT for that Secret Origins ish and NO SUPERBOY in that.

So lets say its UNPUBLISHED
