Hero’s World Mural

In the early autumn of 1976, Joe Kubert pulled in a mural commission from local comics retailer, Ivan Snyder. One warm weekend Joe brought a gaggle of newbie students to the garage of the carriage house and we painted a full color superhero mural on plywood panels from his rough sketch. The piece fronted Ivan’s store in a local mall for many years. Here’s an advertisement I drew for that same store showcasing that same mural. It ran in Ivan’s catalog.

    I seem to recall seeing that at the Heroes World in the Livingston Mall until at least 1990!
    Ah, the memories!

    That mural was in the Heroes World store at the Livingston Mall, even after Ivan sold that particular store, until it closed down. I remember seeing the mural stored at the HW warehouse, before the big Marvel acquisition. No idea where it is now or if it even still exists. Had I known what was to come, I’d have tried to lift it for myself before it all went to hell in a hand basket. LS
