A Gotham Globe masthead runs along the top of the front page, which displays the headline "Penguin Forgives Parents" in bold lettering, with an image of Cobblepot below. The lot exhibits signs of discolouration from age, a small mark on the front, light edge wear and a horizontal fold line from storage. Dimensions: 58 cm x 35 cm x 0.5 cm (23" x 13 3/4" x 1/4")
