    Murphy Anderson Hawkman #4 Complete 11-Page Story "The Machine That Magnetized Men!" Original Art (DC, 1964). A complete Murphy Anderson story from this era is a rare find... and we have two in this sale! The Silver Age version of Hawkman was already steeped in science fiction conventions with him being a lawman from another planet (in the vein of Lensman), but this Gardner Fox story added time travelers from the year 11964 as well! Doesn't matter, because Murphy Anderson can draw anything and make it look great. From that full wingspan spread splash page (replicated on Page 5), to a scene of Carter and Shayera in their civilian clothes (on Pages 2 and 3), to some lovely shots of Hawkgirl (notably on Pages 8 and 9), this story is just stuffed full of wonderful art. It was created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 19" (including paste-up stat header). The logo is a stat paste-up, and there are a couple of stripped-in text corrections taped in from the reverse side. The pages are only very slightly toned and in otherwise Excellent condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
