Cartoonists Make Better Lovers : Murphy Anderson

If you grew up consuming the Silver Age output from DC Comics, the art of Murphy Anderson would be ubiquitous. In that era he helped define the modern look of such characters as the Flash, Adam Strange, Batman, Hawkman, the Atom and Superman. In my mind, Anderson is the very definition of a “smooth” artist. His skill as an inker is legendary and he could ‘pretty up’ the pencils of anyone. 


My Own Worst Enemy” comes from the St. John title ROMANTIC MARRIAGE issue 23 published in July of 1954.

  1. Murphy Anderson is a wonderful artist and very sweet man. He grew up in Asheville NC and attended the very elementary school I teach at.
    And no, he wasn't one of my students.
