“Proof of Heroes” is a gallery exhibition featuring nearly 300 comic book cover printer’s proofs, spanning a decade (1964-1974) of Julius Schwartz’ 42 year run as Editor at DC Comics.

Julius Schwartz began working as an editor at (what is now known as DC Comics) in 1944! During the 1950s & 60s, he oversaw the revival of superheroes such as the Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman, the Batman, and the Atom, which led to the Silver Age of comic books.

These one-of-a-kind Printer’s Proof’s were originally sent to Schwartz for his final approval, before their commercial print run. The covers feature artwork from such icons as Nick Cardy, Murphy Anderson, Neal Adams, Carmine Infantino, Mike Kaluta and many, many more!

When The Hero Initiative approached Tate about the idea of showcasing this collection in our upstairs gallery space, Bear and Bird, he jumped at the chance to share these unusual and rare collectibles with South Florida comic book fans. “These covers are a part of DC Comics history, they are totally unique and cool,” said Tate Ottati. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer a really great gallery event for our customers and to also help out The Hero Initiative with their very worthwhile cause.”

All the covers in this collection will be available for sale at the price of $100 and include a unique Certificate of Authenticity.
