Grade:
VF: 8.0
The Bob Oksner illustration on the cover of Adventure Comics #420 shows Supergirl wreaking havoc, tossing a mangled cannon through the air as if it were a paper airplane. This dynamic art is typical of Bronze Age DC action, signaling the transition from the humorous and verbose covers of the publisher's Silver Age. Oksner's Bronze Age output allowed him to flex his muscles and show off skills not always employed in his earlier comedy and satire output. The success of the Supergirl TV series has driven interest in the character, and with a fourth season premiering in October of 2018, investing in art related to Kara Zor-El is a no-brainer.
