    Ernie Chan and Jack Abel - Original Cover Art to Justice League of America #136 (DC, 1976). Ernie Chan (who sometimes signed his work "Ernie Chua") was one of the most prolific cover artists of the '70s, and in the last five years of the decade it was impossible to scan the comics racks without seeing at least one or two of his covers competing for space. Offered here is an exciting JLA cover, dominated by Batman and The Joker. The oddest thing about this cover is, although it probably hit the stands around mid-October of 1976, Chan signed it "1977." Perhaps he anticipated that it would be published later in the series. In any event, it's an excellent example of his sterling Bronze Age work. 11" x 17" on standard DC stock.
