    Description

    Murphy Anderson Strange Adventures #229 Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). Right around the time he was helping to reinvent the Superman franchise, Anderson revisited one of his earlier classics with this sparkling new cover design for "The Last Mile of Space!" -- a story he had illustrated for a companion title, Mystery in Space, 'way back in 1951. The ink-on-Bristol drawing dominates a piece that, otherwise, consists largely of the paste-up logotype and a column of typeset blurbs for other stories within the issue. The image area is 10" x 15". Art is in Excellent condition, notwithstanding extreme adhesive staining on the typeset section. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
