George Tuska He-Man DC Comic Book Art Printing Plate Masters Of The Universe # 1
THE OTHER FRAMED PLATES PICTURED ARE ONLY TO SHOW YOU WHAT THE PLATES LOOK LIKE WHEN YOU FRAME THEM WITH THE BOOKS THEY PRINTED. From Sparta Illinois World Color Press Printing the home of comic book printing for decades. World Color Press Original 1982 MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #1 COVER factory printing plate. Very few original production plates are available. These cover plates were obtained by my family directly from World Color Press in the 1980's.
A little history from World Color Press Printing. You see many printing plates but you hardly ever see the cover plates. Thats because every newspaper around the country had printing presses that used hundreds of plates for cartoon runs. The page plates in the comic book are much more common because there is only one cover and multiple page plates. The cover has the best display-ability of any printing plate.
The cover plates were secured in their own storage room at the plant while the page plates were just thrown into the scrap recovery ben that anyone had access to. Guaranteed to be original and from World Color Press from Sparta Illinois. These plates have a curve from where they ran on the printing press. They are flexible enough to be flattened for framing.They look incredible framed with the comic book it printed.
