Superman-JFK comic book art sells for $112,000 at Pa. auction

Cover art from a 50-year-old comic book featuring Superman's alter-ego, Clark Kent, as President John F. Kennedy in disguise was sold at an auction for $112,015.

Curt Swan's original cover drawing for Action Comics (hash)309 sold at auction last week in York County, the York Daily Record reports.

On the cover is Superman shaking hands with Clark Kent and a word arrow asks the reader, "Who is the mystery masquerader?"

Alex Winter, general manager of Hake's Americana and Collectibles, says the comic book came out days after the president was shot to death Nov. 22, 1963. Winter says the coincidence has made the comic book almost legendary and the timing of the auction was planned to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death.
