SUPER HERO JAM

A FEW YEARS AGO I POSTED ARTWORK OF A "SUPER HERO JAM" ON WHICH MANY LEGENDARY COMIC BOOK ARTISTS COLLABORATED.  It is, in fact, the first illustration below.  However, I did not know at the time that there was a whole series of them which were apparently commissioned in the 1970s-1980s by a collector of comic art named Martin Greim.  For anyone who loves these characters and the artists who brought them to life, these are incredibly exciting illustrations and I wanted to post them here for those who have not had a chance to see them.  It's sad that so many of these masterful artists are gone; but that is what makes these pictures so great in that we get to see unearthed artwork by the masters of comic book art in collaboration with each other in a giant comix jam! -- remember to click on the pictures so you can biggify them.
