    Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #140 Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). All four scenes here are original art; however, the top three are covered up by stats. Panels 1 and 3 were evidently statted so their positions on the cover could be reversed, while Panel 2 was redone so the image could appear slightly higher. Our online listing shows the cover with and without the stats, though the center one could not be easily removed to photograph, as Superman's head is attached at the top. As you would expect, the art that was covered up by stats has glue stains. Also, the Superman figure in the first panel is covered up by whiteout that might not be removable. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". In Good condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
