After being demobbed, Curt Swan began working for DC Comics in 1945 and began gravitating towards the Superman line of books including Superboy, Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen and Adventure Comics, and drew the daily newspaper comic strip. Swan became the artist most associated with Superman during the Silver Age of comic books, producing hundreds of covers and stories from the 1950s through the 1980s. A mannered, subdued stylist, he brought Superman his smoothest, most polished look and set the mould of DC's corporate image and licensing for years. He continued working on Superman until 1986's reboot by John Byrne. Currently, Heritage has 19 pieces of his original Superman artwork for auction,
