    Description

    Murphy Anderson Showcase #56 Cover Re-creation Doctor Fate and Hourman Original Art (1990s). A decade into its superhero revival, DC began experimenting with team-ups of such 1940s characters as Doctor Fate and Hourman. Not all of them graduated from Showcase (an audition series) into signature books of their own -- but all proved memorable, and sometimes even classic. Anderson's re-creation, here, is a near-duplicate of his famous 1965 cover -- a delicately balanced radial composition that dares to give equal emphasis to the heroes and their enemy. Ink and wet-brush watercolors over graphite on Bristol board. The image area is 15" x 20", matted to 21.25" x 26.5". Excellent condition
