    Description

    Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson - Batman #196 Cover Original Art (DC, 1967). Holy headache, Robin -- from the heart of the Silver Age's "Batmania" comes this mind-boggling "cover hook." The Carmine Infantino/Murphy Anderson art team turned out many of the most compelling covers of the Silver Age, and they produced this "twice-up" "Bats-terpiece" during a year that many aficionados consider to be the zenith of their teamwork. Because of the nostalgia and "camp" factors, Silver Age, "New Look" Batman covers are always in high demand -- so bid accordingly. This killer-diller cover has an image area of approximately 12.5" x 18.5". The logo stat is original, and in great shape, while the pasted-on word balloon that was once glued down next to the Boy Wonder is missing (and could be easily replaced); otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
