Murphy Anderson, RIP

The great Murphy Anderson has passed away. Greater historians than me can tell of his career. He inked the first Superman comic I bought (Action Comics #427, 1973), so Superman drawn by Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson will always be the definitive Superman for me. He was a gentleman. I had a chance to talk to him at length at a con several years back. He was sitting in a hallway, isolated, no one around. I was surprised there wasn't a long line. He was modest and soft-spoken. He graciously signed that first Superman comic I'd bought almost forty years ago. (Photo from the Kirby Museum site).
