    Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson - Original Cover Art for Action Comics #384 (DC, 1970). An exceptional cover by two of the artists most associated with the Man of Steel. The fluoroscope reveals a "diabolical costume" with "weird powers" underneath Superman's familiar red and blue outfit...a costume Superman swears he knows nothing about! In excellent condition for its age, there are several spots of white-out and a light glue stain along the bottom of the image. Also, one of the word balloons shows some evidence of what could be rust stains. Title logo is a stat, as are the balloons, but all the rest of the art, which is standard size, 11.5" x 17.5", is original. This piece also comes with the original hand-colored color guide for this cover. An excellent piece from an increasingly hard-to-find era.
