DC buys JFK-inspired 'Superman' art, will donate

NEW YORK (AP) — DC Entertainment says it has acquired the art drawn by Al Plastino for a 1964 comic book featuring President John F. Kennedy and Superman and will donate it to the JFK Library.

Last month, Heritage Auctions withdrew original artwork for the 1964 comic book from an auction after Plastino found it on display at New York Comic Con in October.

Plastino, who drew the comic, had thought that "Superman's Mission for President Kennedy" in "Superman" No. 170 was donated to Boston's Kennedy Library decades ago. Heritage said the initial seller of the art had purchased it in 1993.

Plastino died Nov. 25. He was 91. His wife, Annmarie, welcomed the move by DC, announced Monday, noting that the art was always very special to Al and their family.
