20,000 Leagues Under the Sea With Superman

"20,000 Leagues Under the Sea With Superman" from Superman vol.1 #81 (National, 1953) by Bill Woolfolk and Al Plastino
Comics legend Al Plastino passed away the day before yesterday, and since he was one of the most prolific Superman (and Superboy) artists during the 50s, I knew I had to show one of his splashes from the era. In addition to his Superman comics work, he also worked on the newspaper strip (and Batman's as well). Famously, he drew the first Legion of Super-Heroes story, and the Parasite's first appearance as well. Infamously, he was hired to redraw the faces of Superman and Jimmy Olsen on Kirby's early issues of the latter's series.
