My Favorite Superman Covers: Action Comics #61

I love this Jack Burnley cover to Action Comics #61… it’s a great dramatic pose with Superman swooping in to cap a white-hot fire. The composition and lighting are just fantastic here. Jack Burnley was a DC cover artist in the 1940s and drew many of the best-known early covers for Superman and Batman, including Batman #9, Superman #21, and Action Comics #23. You can see a gallery here at the DC Database.

Heritage has the copy pictured above in their Sunday night auction this week.
