    Gil Kane and Murphy Anderson - Showcase #36 the Atom Splash Page Original Art (DC, 1961). Gil Kane and Murphy Anderson, both formidable artists on their own, often teamed to make an unbeatable comics art tandem. Not many pages shout "Silver Age" louder than a Kane and Anderson splash, especially if the duo are working on one of editor Julius Schwartz's SF-infused superhero yarns! The Atom makes an ideal counter-spy as he tackles two Cold War kidnappers. This large art has been cropped very close to the panel borders, and there are some minor stains at the lower left, and some signs of mild paper aging, but they do little to detract from the enormous eye-appeal of this spectacular splash from an early Atom appearance. The tile logo, and a caption box at the lower left have slipped off. The art measures an overall 13.25" x 19.25." Gil Kane has autographed the page at the upper left, and Murphy Anderson has signed the page at the lower right, and also dated his autograph 7-7-64. The art is in Very Good condition. Add some punch to your portfolio with this DC Silver Age masterpiece.
