This cover art for Action Comics #559 depicts Superman doing battle with minor recurring character Loretta York, aka Yellow Peri, a sorceress with occult powers that reappeared sporadically to irritate the Man of Steel. Uruguayan artist Eduardo Barreto's work on this piece is quite impressive, his use of foreground imagery and his playful reorientation of the title's logo add to the captivating graphics that grace this issue's cover.
