    Description

    Neal Adams and Murphy Anderson Justice League of America #95 Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). Part of DC's efforts to get "relevant" in the late-1960s to early-1970s was to connect with the hip youth movement of the day. Johnny Dune, seen here, was just a reflection of the then-current music scene with performers such as Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix. In addition, Johnny Dune was a returning war veteran, and the Vietnam War was very much a hot-button topic of the time. Also of note... Johnny was a mutant. He is possibly only the second DC character to receive that designation, the first being Captain Comet. Featured heroes on the cover are Batman, Green Arrow, Superman, Green Lantern, Black Canary and the Atom. Created in ink over graphite on 9.75" x 11.75" Bristol board. This board was then affixed to an 11.75" x 17.25" sheet of thicker board for cover layout. The corner badge, logo, header info, and sidebar floating heads are all printed paste-up stats. The two lower text blurbs are hand-lettered paste-ups. The board is toned, some stats are very toned, and there is a bit of production tape and glue residue in places. In Very Good condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
