The two men worked side by side at DC Comics. But it was Robinson who had the wherewithal to save the original Superman 14 cover art depicting "The Man of Steel" with a bold eagle perched on his shoulder in front of a U.S. shield - as well as his own "Double Guns" Detective Comics No. 69 prototype showing the maniacal Joker rising out of an Aladdin lamp pointing guns at Batman and Robin.
Nearly 70 years later, Robinson is reluctantly parting with the two original artworks through the online auctioneer ComicConnect.com, from Nov. 10 through Dec. 1. The Superman cover is expected to bring $500,000 to $1 million, the Joker more than $400,000.
