    Murphy Anderson Showcase #55 Splash Page 10 Doctor Fate, Hourman, and Solomon Grundy Original Art (DC, 1965). This classic tale featured the first Silver Age appearance of Solomon Grundy. It also featured an early Silver Age appearance (and rare pairing of Justice Society of America members) of Doctor Fate and Hourman. It was only their 5th and 3rd Silver Age appearances respectively and one of those was in a text article. This "smashing" page is a "30-seconds-later" view of the cover image, crafted for the tale "Solomon Grundy Goes On A Rampage!" The twice-up scale page was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 19" (counting the stat paste-up header). There is a stamp on the backside indicating that this page once belonged to comic historian Jerry Bails. The bottom right marginal corner has a metallic sticker "22". The page is only very lightly toned, with a bit of minor edge/corner wear. Overall, it's a stunner in Excellent condition.
