    Neal Adams and Dick Giordano Justice League of America #89 Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). One of the best art teams of the Bronze Age, Neal Adams and Dick Giordano helped establish the new look of superheroes for DC Comics. Doughy 40 year old heroes were out and muscular 29 year olds were in! This story was a bit of meta-fiction as real-world writer Harlan Ellison is cast as the main character who dreams himself into the DCU with cover co-stars Flash, Hawkman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Black Canary, Green Arrow, and a faceless Superman and Batman! The classic cover was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15", matted to 16" x 22". The logo, header dressing, text and sidebar heads are stat past-ups. There is some residue staining on Aquaman. Signed to Harlan Ellison at the top by Julius Schwartz. The paste-up word balloon has Harlan Ellison's name; however, the published cover says "Reader" in that space. In Very Good condition.
