This original piece of comic illustration art would be a great addition to the collection of any fan of the unique original artwork to vintage comics. This is the ORIGINAL COMIC ART, which is far bigger in size than a comic book or a magazine. A whopping 10.5" by 16", and almost all of it's image-area, so you can imagine that every individual figure is substantial. A conversation piece of the highest order, you'll want to have this one framed and displayed prominently.
Much too large for our scanner, this jaw-dropper is almost a foot wide and over a foot tall, so I took a some pictures with the digital camera. One photograph shows the art alongside a comic for scale.
The digital pictures make the piece appear dull and drab, as it was photographed through the protective film (easily removed, for framing, should the next lucky owner desires). In person it is especially striking and in well-preserved shape. This actual one-off item was created by JACK KIRBY in 1977 for MARVEL Comics to produce the entertaining story. This gorgeous showpiece is the original, not mere "stats" or photocopies, EVEN THE WORD BALLOONS AND TEXT IS ALL HAND DRAWN AND HAND-LETTERED, -- it is especially striking since the inking was done to high standards, so it really emphasizes the high-impact images.
This is one-of-a-kind material which would be a great acquisition for any fan of the old superhero comics or books, graphic novels and magazines! Extra fresh, bright, and clean; It has obviously been well-preserved so far. It has the clipped corners at the top, as was common in the day.
Boasting lots of great details, this would be particularly impressive if it were framed and displayed, but it could also be stored for investment.
