Description

    Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson - Original Cover Art for Superboy #181 (DC, 1972). A wonderful cover image from the "super" team of Curt Swan (pencils) and Murphy Anderson (inks). What lies within the mysterious metal crate? Why is Superboy so agitated? You had to buy the issue to find out! Swan's outstanding composition and figurework are given weight and definition by Anderson's slick inks. An outstanding Bronze Age treasure. 11" x 17" with moderate white-out (the title "Super-Marriage or Super-Flop!" was originally inked on the side of the crate, and has been whited-out), and one dialogue stat is missing, as is the Comics Code symbol. Still, a great image of Superboy using his powers, and a terrific example of Swan/Anderson at their peak. Click Here to read John Michlig's entertaining article about this issue of Superboy.
