    Description

    Gil Kane and Sid Greene - Original Cover Art for The Atom #37 (DC, 1968). Major Mynah, a talking Mynah bird that Ray Palmer kept in a cage as his personal transportation while shrunk as the Atom, gets him into some major trouble in this weird, wild cover from 1968. Pencilled by vet Gil Kane, and inked with finesse by Sid Greene, this impressive Silver Age cover is the first appearance of the Major Mynah character. Owning just an ordinary bird is not enough for the Atom, who has Hawkman outfit it with a pair of artificial wings powered by a cosmic-ray motor, which enables it to fly faster than the fastest birds. The overall page size is 11.5" x 17" with an image area of 10" x 15". This piece is in excellent condition with very little aging and the slightest bit of yellowing around the crop marks on all four sides. A soaring example of Silver Age superstar talent.
