    Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson Superman #238 Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). The "Sand Superman" in a classic cover appearance! In the early days of the Bronze Age, it was decided by the "DC powers-that-be" that Superman was too powerful, and therefore Kryptonite was an over-used plot device. In a multi-issue story arc, much of Superman's power was leeched away into a sand creature. Also, all Kryptonite on Earth was turned to iron. The saga of the Sand Superman would run from issue #233 until #242. This powerful cover was created in ink over graphite on Sparta cover stock Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box, logo, and header info are all stat paste-ups. The lower caption box and word balloons are hand-lettered paste-ups (some are missing). There is glue residue on and near Superman's chest insignia, and on the Quarrmer (Sand Superman). Overall, in Very Good condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
