    Description

    Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson Superboy #179 Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). A shocking doom for mankind, as Superboy is the reason people are melting on this cover! The "Swanderson" team was credited with producing the piece in the letters page of Superboy #181. Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board. Trimmed to an approximate size of 9.75" x 10.25", it was then affixed to a Sparta cover stock Bristol board with a top section with paste-up for the corner box, logo, price, and all over header dressing. The word balloon and the lower caption box are hand-lettered paste-ups. There is a bit of glue residue on the lightly toned board. The overall image area is 10" x 15". In Very Good condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
