    Murphy Anderson Justice League of America #17 Cover Original Art (DC, 1963). This cover featuring the second appearance of the Tornado Tyrant was similar to the cover of Mystery in Space #61 (which was his first appearance). Murphy Anderson drew and inked this one (he inked over Carmine Infantino on the MIS #61 cover). It features Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and the Atom! That's almost a complete JLA roll call. Of note, the Tornado Tyrant would later be ret-conned into the origin of the Red Tornado. This cover was created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". The price, CCA stamp, issue 3, and word "tyrant" are all replacement stats. The JLA logo seems to be a vintage stat with some stain, wrinkle, and minor tear in the lower left. There is glue residue and discoloration on the top right, and in the interior areas. In Very Good condition.
