    Ross Andru and Joe Orlando DC Comics Presents #53 Cover Original Art (DC, 1983). Superman's team-up title pairs him up with... The House of Mystery? Cain is on hand to try to save the Man of Steel before his vulnerability to magic makes him a Monster of Steel in "The Haunting Dooms of Halloween!" This great cover is signed by Andru and Orlando and was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". Slight tanning overall, and there are several paste-up elements, with a bit of glue residue on the central bat figures. The Superman figure is a stat paste-up of the original art that lies underneath it. All text is paste-up (the "M" in Mystery has a small rip in it), and the UPC box in the bottom corner is paste-up as well. Overall in Very Good condition.
