Here is the press release :

THE LIFE AND ART OF MURPHY ANDERSON is a lavishly illustrated autobiographical memoir of the man whose style defined the DC look for a generation of fans.

Beginning in comics in the Golden Age of the 1940s, Anderson went on to produce a syndicated comic strip (Buck Rogers) and educational comics (PS Magazine for the military) in addition to the science-fiction comic books that his fans know and love. Now for the first time, comics historian R.C. Harvey has compiled an exhaustive look at the varied career of this cartooning legend, best known for his ground-breaking work at DC Comics in the 1960s on such characters as Superman, Hawkman, Adam Strange, the Atomic Knights, and others!

Murphy’s recollections are peppered with comments and insights about the state of the art and behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes about other artists he encountered (Lou Fine, Will Eisner, Curt Swan, Gil Kane, and others), and illustrated with a generous sampling of work from every phase of his career, particularly at Fiction House, Ziff-Davis, and DC Comics, all direct from his personal archives. It’s the ultimate look at the career of one of comics’ top talents!

The 160-page, 8-1/2" by 11" squarebound trade paperback with full color covers and black-&-white interiors retails for $17.95 in the U.S. and ships 26 June 2003.
