Description

I wanted this piece from the day the comic book hit the newstands in 1969. It took about 25 years for it to turn up, when the artist consigned it to be auctioned at Sotheby's New York.

I never realized this until I added the color photograph of the image [which has colors close to those which appeared in the comic book itself], but this image wasn't literally used as a centerfold. Any copy of the comic book would have fallen apart if the comic were disassembled so as to use it as a pin-up. It appeared on the interior pages which were about 20 pages from the end of the comic book, while the center would have been about 30 pages from both the beginning and ending pages. But who really cares? It has always appeared to me to be a centerfold, and, since that momentous day when JLA No. 76 was released, it has always been my favorite of all centerfolds in the history of comics (followed, I suppose, by the great Curt Swan/George Klein centerfold showing the entire Superman family from a 1960s Superman Annual).

I'm with you -- one of my favourite Murphy Anderson pieces, and I wanted it from the day the comic came out as well, but couldn't afford the fare!

Every time I visit your gallery, and I've visited it quite a few times, I always look at this for it never fails to leave a smile. I especially love the body language of all the members (especially Johnny Thunder and Mr. Terrific). This might well be my favorite art on the whole CAF site.
