DescriptionMurphy Anderson Mystery Men Comics #1 Cover Re-Creation Original Art (undated). In a scene that would have been right at home on the cover of a "hero pulp," the Green Mask stops a mad doctor cold, with hot lead from his barking .45 automatic. Murphy Anderson re-created this heart-stopping scene from the 1939 classic, originally drawn by his artistic idol, Lou Fine. And, as in the original printing, Anderson colored the Green Mask's cowl blue. Michael Shelby was a rich private investigator who donned the colorful costume of the Green Mask in order to wage war on crime. Initially fighting with only his wits and lots of gunplay, Shelby was eventually treated in a "vita-ray chamber" and attained superhuman abilities. This splendid re-creation captures the macabre mood of the early pulp-like superhero comic books. The image area of the art is 15" x 21.5", and the piece has been matted and framed to an overall size of 22.5" x 29". The art is in Excellent condition.
