NEW YORK (AP) – An auction house has withdrawn from sale the original artwork for a 1964 Superman comic book featuring President John F. Kennedy.

Heritage Auctions had hoped to sell the artwork Friday in California for an estimated $50,000. But its creator sued the Dallas-based firm Tuesday, seeking to disclose the seller’s name.

Illustrator Al Plastino of Shirley, N.Y., believed “Superman’s Mission for President Kennedy” had been donated to Boston’s Kennedy Library decades ago. But last month he spotted it at New York Comic Con, where Heritage was exhibiting it.

Heritage says the seller purchased it at auction in 1993.

Plastino’s attorney says DC Comics told his client the work would be donated to the library. The attorney says he believes it was stolen before that could happen.

DC Comics had no comment.
