    Murphy Anderson Mystery In Space #87 Hawkman Cover Original Art (DC, 1963). This was Murphy Anderson's first Silver Age Hawkman cover, half a year before Hawkman #1. This issue included a letter from Hawkman artist Joe Kubert giving his blessing to Murphy Anderson as the new artist for the Winged Warrior. In spite of flocks of fans for Kubert's Hawkman work, Anderson would become the Silver Age Hawkman artist in the eyes of many of those fans. This cover was crafted twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". The logo, CCA stamp, and issue number are stat paste-ups. The DC bullet is printed on the DC cover stock board. Adam Strange's floating head is original art paste-up that was trimmed out of the lower portion and moved up the page. All cover text is hand-lettered paste-up (the lower caption is held on with tape). There is some whiteout art correction on the cover. In Very Good condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
