Best Drawing of Superman Ever?

My subscription copy of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly arrived in the mail yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised to see the above Superman image emblazoned on the cover. You know that great drawing. I know it. For crying out loud, I owned it for 21 years!

The 1972 cover to Action Comics #412 was penciled by Neal Adams and inked by Murphy Anderson, and was one of only two or three pages of artwork on which those two gentlemen collaborated. Though my favorite Superman artist of all time is the great Curt Swan, this Adams/Anderson effort is possibly my favorite single drawing ever of the character. And I will never get tired of telling you that I owned it from 1985 to 2006!
