    Sheldon Mayer’s Sugar & Spike is the most underrated DC Comics. Sugar & Spike ran for 98 issues. You could be the lucky owner of 28 original art of Sugar & Spike#23 story pages from 1959 from Heritage Auctions.

    The complete artwork for Issue 23 of what many fans consider to be one of the best comic book titles ever done by Mayer. Full of humor and mischief, and based on his children. Created in ink over blue pencil, and graphite on DC Bristol board with image areas of 11″ x 17″. Title and art paste-ups in Panel 1 of Page 1. A stripped-in text correction in Panel 2 of Page 12, a title stat at the top of most pages. Also includes a letter’s page stat (7.5″ x 12″) with a vellum overlay.

    Sugar & Spike was launched in 1956 for 98 issues published through 1971. It was canceled due to Mayer’s failing eyesight that limited his drawing ability.
