Gene Colan and Frank Giacoia Daredevil #41 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968)....
Gene Colan and Frank Giacoia Daredevil #41 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). In a bid to protect his secret identity, Matt Murdock adopted an additional one... that of his own (fake) twin brother, fun-lovin' Mike Murdock! After keeping up the farce for 15 issues, Matt decided it was time to put Mike on ice. The scarlet spectral Daredevil was impressive on the printed version of this cover, however he looks even better in black and white! Gene Colan was at his best when he was working with shadows, and it shows on this cover created in ink over graphite with whiteout art corrections and highlights on World Color Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box, logo, and all header info are printed paste-ups that have discolored. The "Death of Mike Murdock" caption box is a paste-up. The board was slit around Daredevil's horned head to allow the logo to slip behind it, and also slit to allow the caption box to fit in. There is overall toning, and a staple in the top margin. Overall, the page is in Very Good condition.

Neal Adams Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #148 Cover Original Art (DC, 1972)....
Neal Adams Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #148 Cover Original Art (DC, 1972). A mighty cover in the Jack Kirby tradition for this "gateway" book to Kirby's Fourth World saga. The dynamic and powerful cover features Supes, Jimmy, and the new Newsboy Legion. It was created in ink over graphite on Sparta Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box, logo, and other header elements are all printed paste-ups (which have discolored slightly). The bottom caption box is hand-lettered paste-up, as are the word balloons on the cover. There is glue residue near the word balloons. The issue number paste-up is missing, along with a bit from the lower caption box, and a spine paste-up, leaving glue residue behind in each place. The cover was signed by Jack Kirby. In Very Good condition.

John Romita Sr. Daredevil #16 Story Page 7 Original Art (Marvel, 1966). Not only was this issue chock-full -
John Romita Sr. Daredevil #16 Story Page 7 Original Art (Marvel, 1966). Not only was this issue chock-full of that great John Romita Sr. art, but it pre-dates his spectacular run on Amazing Spider-Man. In fact, one reason this is a historic issue is that the Issue #16-17 two-parter was a sort of try-out that lead to him taking over the Spider-Man book when Steve Ditko left. Although our friendly neighborhood Wallcrawler isn't on this page... his Spider-Signal sure is! Created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". In Excellent condition.

Joe Maneely Kid Colt Outlaw #53 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1955)....
Joe Maneely Kid Colt Outlaw #53 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1955). Few Maneely covers are on the collectors' market -- this is the first one we've offered in more than ten years. The art is well-detailed, exciting, and expressive. No surprise since Maneely had been working in the industry for almost 10 years at this point, and would produce hundreds of stories (mostly for Marvel) in the 1950s alone. This stunning cover was crafted twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13.5" x 20". The logo and CCA stamp are stat paste-ups (the logo is loose, but held in place by production tape). There are some missing paste-ups, leaving glue residue in places near the masthead and in the lower right where a caption box is missing. The reverse side has a comical graphite portrait piece of a man. Overall, the lightly toned page is in Very Good condition.

Jim Lee and Dan Green Uncanny X-Men #248 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1989)....
Jim Lee and Dan Green Uncanny X-Men #248 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1989). First appearance of Jim Lee on the Uncanny X-Men! He would come back next for issue #252, and continue a run (missing only a few issues) up to #280. A transformative element on both this title, and comics in general, Jim Lee's pre-Image Comics art work is in high demand. So a key issue such as this should get a lot of attention. This was the cover for the Chris Claremont story "The Cradle Will Fall!". It was produced in ink over graphite and blue pencil on Marvel cover stock Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The corner box and logo are a stat paste-up. Colossus' word balloon is a Tom Orzechowski hand-lettered paste-up. There is a missing paste-up caption box just under the "N" in the logo, leaving glue residue there. There is also some glue residue below that on the right side, a bit under the corner box on the left, and a third bit above Colossus. Signed by Jim Lee in the lower margin. In Very Good condition. From the Personal Collection of Jim Lee.

Todd McFarlane Amazing Spider-Man #310 Story Page 5 Original Art (Marvel, 1988)....
Todd McFarlane Amazing Spider-Man #310 Story Page 5 Original Art (Marvel, 1988). Todd McFarlane had only been on this title for nine months at this point (13 issues, as some months were bi-weekly). This page from the David Michelinie tale "Shrike Force!" is pretty much a quintessential Spider-Man page... Spidey saves civilians, which allows bad guy to get away, then has to run from the police, hopes the Daily Bugle will buy his photos, and laments on how he needs the cash. Couple that with Mr. McFarlane's powerful and acrobatic figure work and it is no wonder this title shot up to the top of sales charts! Todd McFarlane's work on Amazing Spider-Man was set to change the image comic's had in many people's minds. Comic were becoming more mainstream than they had been in decades. This page was created in ink over blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". Terry Fitzgerald assisted with backgrounds on the story, however McFarlane inked his own figure work. Signed by Todd McFarlane in the lower margin. In Excellent condition.

Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott Fantastic Four #58 Story Page 17 Doctor Doom Original Art (Marvel, 1967)....
Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott Fantastic Four #58 Story Page 17 Doctor Doom Original Art (Marvel, 1967). Panel pages do not get much better than this one. The Human Torch faces "The Dismal Dregs of Defeat!" in this story that features Doctor Doom having siphoned off the Power Cosmic from the Silver Surfer! This was during a high-point for the Lee-Kirby dream-team, and a lot of the foundations of the Marvel Universe were still being poured right through this flagship title. The page was rendered twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 19.5" (including the stat paste-up ad for Marvel Super-Heroes on TV at the bottom). The board is lightly toned, with some production tape holding on the stat at the bottom. The reverse side has a "skinned" abrasion in the top center that does not show through to the front. There is whiteout text correction in the last panel, and a bit of whiteout art correction on Johnny's thigh. There is a very minor and faint stain on Johnny's face and in the margin to the right of that. In Very Good condition.

Frank Frazetta Death Dealer 6 Painting Original Art (1990)....
Frank Frazetta Death Dealer 6 Painting Original Art (1990). Owning a Frazetta painting is a dream of many serious art collectors, not just the fans of the comics and fantasy art genres, although it's accurate to note that the latter were the first to appreciate Frazetta's genius. From his more humble beginnings, drawing illustrations for text stories in the middle of "funny animal" comic books in the 1940s, to more adult themes in comics, then to paintings used for paperback covers, and famously popular rock album covers, Frazetta was ultimately and deservedly recognized by the serious fine art community. And make no mistake -- his is fine art! Twelve Frazetta paintings have realized more than $100,000 in our auctions -- one (At the Earth's Core) holding the record at $1,075,500. Of Heritage's twenty top-selling original art pieces in our Comics & Comic Art auction history, five are by Frazetta, far more than any other artist, with Todd McFarlane and Robert Crumb tied for second with two each. If you could have just one of his paintings, chances are you would think of one featuring the Death Dealer. The original just might be the most renowned fantasy painting of all, but there are five other paintings featuring the axe-wielding barbarian with the burning eyes, and we're pleased to offer one of them in this auction. This is Death Dealer 6, and in true barbarian fashion, features him fighting a giant serpent. It was used, appropriately enough, as the cover for Death Dealer #6 published by Image Comics in 2008. The large and impressive work was fashioned in oil on masonite, signed and dated in the lower right of the 18" x 30" image area, open-front framed to 23.5" x 35.5". There are some minor abrasions in the lower edge of the image area, and a bit of the masonite is showing through on the bottom right corner. The top left corner seems to be slightly rounded. Overall in Very Good condition.

Neal Adams and Dick Giordano Batman: Stacked Cards [Book and Record Set] PR-27 Cover Original Art (Power Records, ...
Neal Adams and Dick Giordano Batman: Stacked Cards [Book and Record Set] PR-27 Cover Original Art (Power Records, 1975). Batman and Robin are playing against the odds in the story "Stacked Cards", which pits them against the Clown Prince of Crime himself... The Joker! If you are a fan of vintage 1970s Neal Adams art, and especially his work with Batman, this is something you can't pass up. In addition, this cover brings back fond memories for fans who had any of the many book and record sets produced by Peter Pan Records under their Power Records label. This story was eventually reprinted in the 2006 book Batman Illustrated by Neal Adams. The stark background sets off the Adams/Giordano figure work to great effect in a bit of an homage to the cover of Batman #9 (1942). Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The logo, issue number, and cover text of "The Joker" and "Stacked Cards" are all stat paste-ups. All of the "Ha ha ha ha"s are original hand-lettered text. The National Periodical Publications copyright strip at the bottom is paste-up as well. There are pinholes on the bottom corners of the image area. There is a small glue residue stain just under the logo (in a "HA"). Overall, in Excellent condition.

John Romita Sr. Amazing Spider-Man #61 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968)....
John Romita Sr. Amazing Spider-Man #61 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). The first cover appearance for Gwen Stacy as well as her father Captain George Stacy! A sad foreboding of things to come for this family, it was the cover for the story "What a Tangled Web We Weave...!" This tangled web was spun by Stan Lee. John Romita Sr. had taken over art chores on the title just two years previously, but his impact was immediate and powerful. During his run, Peter Parker would transform from a nerdy science-geek to a fairly normal college kid with everyday problems. Also during that time, Spider-Man would transform into Marvel's corporate mascot. This split-second rescue cover was created at an impressive twice-up scale in ink over blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 12.25" x 18". Spider-Man's head in the main image area is an original art paste-up, as are the upper portions of the ropes. The corner box, logo, and cover text are all stat paste-ups. The toned board has production oil stains on the reverse side, but not on the front. Corner crease at upper left. Pinholes. The art has been professionally conserved. Signed by Romita Sr. in the lower right margin. Very Good condition.

Al Williamson The Amazing Adventures of Buster Crabbe #5 Unpublished Cover Preliminary Color Image Original Ar...
Al Williamson The Amazing Adventures of Buster Crabbe #5 Unpublished Cover Preliminary Color Image Original Art (Lev Gleason, 1954). Lost comic art history turns up! This title ended with issue #4, but not before art was produced for a story titled "Savage World" for issue #5. Here we have the preliminary cover design with color, which appears to be the work of Al Williamson with possible Roy Krenkel backgrounds. Produced in ink over graphite with watercolor on 7" x 10.25" Bristol board, with a 7" x 6" image area. There are spots that seem to have had paste-ups on the art, and there were paste-ups (all now missing) on the top section. It is in Very Good condition. The finished cover art is also in this same sale, so be sure to check it out!

Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott Fantastic Four #58 Story Page 20 Doctor Doom Original Art (Marvel, 1967)....
Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott Fantastic Four #58 Story Page 20 Doctor Doom Original Art (Marvel, 1967). The story and plotting team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were at full stride by this point in the series, as was the art team of Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott! Having just in the previous few months introduced the Inhumans, Black Panther, Silver Surfer, and Galactus, Stan and Jack decided it was time for the FF's arch-nemesis to reappear in the story "The Dismal Dregs of Defeat!" He's usually enough trouble for the Fab Foursome, but in this story he has stolen the Power Cosmic from the Silver Surfer and rides off into the sunset on his stolen cosmic surf board. The Fantastic Four are defeated. Mind-blowing action in the mighty Marvel manner! A major page created at twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 19.5". There is some art correction whiteout in Panels 4-6, and Panel 6 has a stat paste-up of Doctor Doom in the distance. The page is lightly toned, with 2" rip in the top edge into the image area, and a staple in the top left margin. There is glue/stain residue in Panels 5 and 6. In Good condition.

Jack Kirby and Paul Reinman X-Men #1 Story Page 3 Beast Original Art (Marvel, 1963)....
Jack Kirby and Paul Reinman X-Men #1 Story Page 3 Beast Original Art (Marvel, 1963). The readers' very first look at one of Professor X's rigorous training lessons at his school for "talented" students. Hank McCoy, the Beast, is put through his paces and demonstrates his uncanny athleticism. Issue #2 would be the first ever use of the term "Danger Room", but it is not a stretch of the imagination to guess that this was likely in the fabled Danger Room as well. Training sessions such as this were a genius device used by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby to show the characters using their powers even when there was not a battle going on. It also explained the pretext of Xavier's school. This spectacular piece was crafted at twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.

Jim Starlin and Rich Buckler Thanos Concept Illustration Original Art (circa 1971-72)....
Jim Starlin and Rich Buckler Thanos Concept Illustration Original Art (circa 1971-72). "This is probably one of the first concept drawings of Thanos I ever did," Starlin said about this striking portrait of perhaps his most notable creation, a villain who will be gracing movie screens in the new Avengers film by the time of this auction. Starlin said the design was done "long before I started working at Marvel," and elaborated "Jack Kirby's Metron is clearly the more dominant influence in this character's look. Not Darkseid. Both [Darkseid and Thanos] started off much smaller than they originally became. This was one of the drawings I had in my portfolio when I was hired by Marvel. It was later inked by Rich Buckler." With an image area of 10" x 15" this is the size of an original comic cover, and it's an intimidating image indeed! Signed "Starlin/Buckler" at lower right, and below that it's signed again by both Starlin (in blue ink) and Buckler. Ink over graphite on Bristol, with marker used to fill in some of the large black area. There is a rough pencil sketch of Iron Man's head on the back of the piece. Two small stains at lower right. Some edge creasing. One of Starlin's signatures is smudged. Very Good condition.

Al Williamson The Amazing Adventures of Buster Crabbe #5 Unpublished Cover Original Art (Lev Gleason, 1954)....
Al Williamson The Amazing Adventures of Buster Crabbe #5 Unpublished Cover Original Art (Lev Gleason, 1954). Lost comic art history turns up... again! This series ended with issue #4, but production work on issue #5 was already underway for a story titled "Savage World", which included preparing a cover for the issue. In the early 2000's a silver print of the cover for this unpublished issue turned up in Al Williamson's personal archives (and was published in EC Fan-Addict Fanzine #2). Here we offer the original art used for that silver print. It seems to be by Al Williamson, with possible Frank Frazetta art on the female, and with Roy Krenkel backgrounds. This final cover art was created in ink with red ink key lines over graphite on Bristol board, with stat paste-ups for the header text and logo (some stats missing). You can see the "Silver Printed" stamp in the top right of the board. The image area measures 7" x 10.5". It is in Very Good condition. The prelim color cover art is in this same sale, so be sure to check that out also!

Rob Liefeld New Mutants #98 Story Page 15 Original Art (Marvel, 1991)....
Rob Liefeld New Mutants #98 Story Page 15 Original Art (Marvel, 1991). Deadpool made his first appearance in this issue, and this was just the second out of only seven interior pages to show this wildly popular character. The movie "Deadpool 2" opens just a week after this auction, and that film will have the screen debut of Cable, who also figures heavily on this page. In fact, when we first meet Deadpool, we find out he has been sent to kill Cable! This has to rank among the most desirable 1990s pages we have ever offered. Dare we call this book a certain generation's equivalent of Amazing Fantasy #15? Whether you go that far or not, we think you'll agree that bidding on this page (which is offered without reserve) should be very competitive indeed. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Deadpool's eyes were partially done in marker, as were a few other minor art elements. Signed by Liefeld in the bottom margin. The image area is 10" x 15.25". Both the left and right margins have one hole punch; otherwise, in Excellent condition.

Jim Aparo Adventure Comics #440 Spectre Cover Original Art (DC, 1975).... (Total: 2 Items)
Jim Aparo Adventure Comics #440 Spectre Cover Original Art (DC, 1975). This is the first Aparo Spectre cover we've had the privilege to offer, and it's sure to attract a lot of attention from collectors! The series that gave the Spectre a "new lease on life" ran in Adventure Comics #431 through this issue, #440. Editor Joe Orlando was reportedly mugged, and that event inspired this gruesomely violent series that was highly controversial at the time. Orlando plotted the stories of a vengeful Spectre with writer Michael Fleisher, and artist Jim Aparo rose to the challenge, coming a long way from his "Miss Bikini Luv" stories done in the 1960s for Charlton. The art is in ink over graphite on a sheet of DC Bristol board (actually, it's the back side, as the other is printed with a "DC 100 PAGES" masthead). The image size is 9.75" x 15". There is an area of discoloration on the character's image, possibly from contact with another item (the artboard did not have a paste-over that would have accounted for this). All of the "trade dress" elements (logo blurbs and text along the top edge) are original production stats, with tape holding some elements down. Jim Aparo signed the cover with his initials, and later added a signature along the bottom. Good condition. A nice copy of the printed comic is also included.

Olivia (Olivia De Berardinis) - Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) Painting Original Art (2017)....
Olivia (Olivia De Berardinis) - Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) Painting Original Art (2017). Original Olivia pieces are always highly coveted by collectors, but couple that with the fan base for Wonder Woman, fans of the recent movie, and the fact that this image features Gal Gadot, the star of that movie, and you have a truly prized piece of artwork! Olivia has gone through many different styles over the years... straight line art, airbrushed masterpieces, 1980's New Wave styling, etc. Her newest seems to be this fusion of high-gloss paints (including metallic paints) on solid wood board. With a high-gloss overcoat, these are as shiny as they are stunning. Here, a full figure of Gal Gadot stands ready for battle on the 12" x 24" board, open-front framed to 13.75" x 25.75". Signed in the image area and again on the reverse side of the board. A magnificent work, in Excellent condition.

Travis Charest and Ray McCarthy Batman #488 Cover Original Art (DC, 1993). Robin the Boy Wonder teams with Azrael (who had just first appeared in October of 1992). It would be just a few months before Jean-Paul Valley (Azrael) would find himself in the Batman costume after Bane had broken Bruce Wayne's back in the July issue of this title. A striking pre-Knightfall cover crafted in ink over graphite on bright white DC cover stock Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". It has an acetate overlay with the logo (painted from the reverse side), and the corner box, CCA stamp, and UPC box are all stat paste-ups. It is Plexiglas front framed out to 13" x 19". In Excellent condition.

John Romita Sr. and Joe Sinnott Amazing Spider-Man Aim Toothpaste Giveaway #1 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1980). A rare promotional comic that featured Spider-Man fighting against the evil Green Goblin! This exciting cover could have been a regular cover for Amazing Spider-Man, given the layout and composition. It's a swell cover for any collector's sweet-tooth! Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". All cover text and logo are stat paste-ups. The logo and header bar have bubbled up but are intact. There is a bit of whiteout art correction on the lightly toned page. Signed "JR/JS" in the lower image area.

John Buscema and Johnny Craig Sub-Mariner #20 Cover Doctor Doom Original Art (Marvel, 1969). "In the Darkness Dwells Doom!" ...Doctor Doom, that is. A massive melee matching majestic monarchs in the mighty Marvel manner (as Stan Lee would be likely to say)! Created in ink over graphite on World Color stock Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box, price box, and logo are all on a single original paste-up stat. The lower title text is the original paste-up stat as well. Slight glue residue around paste-ups, and there is a glue stain near Namor's fist. The lightly toned board has creases in the marginal corners, one crease from the lower right edge into the image area, and pinholes in the top margin. In Very Good condition.

Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott Fantastic Four #58 Story Page 13 Doctor Doom Original Art (Marvel, 1967)....
Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott Fantastic Four #58 Story Page 13 Doctor Doom Original Art (Marvel, 1967). Having stolen the Power Cosmic from the Silver Surfer, Doctor Doom uses it here to lay down a beating on Mr. Fantastic! From the aptly named "Dismal Dregs of Defeat!", this page shows the Fantastic Four suffering possibly their first ever major defeat. Sinnott-inked pages are the most desirable Kirby Fantastic Four pages in the minds of many, and the presence of Reed, the Human Torch, the Thing, and Victor von Doom makes this a great one. Created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". There is a bit of production tape in the lower margin on the "continued..." strip. The lightly toned page has a rip in the top margin (just up to the image area), and a crease in the top left corner. There is also a minor stain in the lower left side margin. In Very Good condition.

Robert Crumb Yarrowstalks #2 "Head Comix" Complete 1-Page Story Original Art (Yarrowstalks, 1967)....
Robert Crumb Yarrowstalks #2 "Head Comix" Complete 1-Page Story Original Art (Yarrowstalks, 1967). R. Crumb's first use of the title "Head Comix", and a collection of some of his best recurring characters all on one page never before offered at auction! It was July 1967 in Philadelphia... the Summer of Love, and Underground Comix history was about to be made. A fertile period for Undergrounds in general, with over 100 new titles coming to press, but it was also a fertile period for one of the genre's leading contributors... R. Crumb. Having just moved to San Francisco, Crumb was contributing to several underground newspapers, including Philly's Yarrowstalks. He had already created a fairly large stable of his own characters, and this complete single-page story from that high water mark is the definitive first published use of the "Head Comix" title. The page features two panels containing very early examples of Crumb's iconic Keep on Truckin' imagery, the cultural critiques and existential yearnings he became most celebrated for, as well as the earliest appearances we've ever offered (and among the first ever in print) of many of the classic characters he would go on to use for years. Included are Mr. Natural, Angelfood McSpade, Mr. Snoid, Eggs Ackley, Snappy Bitz & Krazy Krax (sometimes known as Simp & the Gimp), Ole Pooperoo, Jesus, and even Those Cute Little Bearzy Wearzies! An amazing page stuffed with 36 panels of characters! And if that was not enough, the art is absolutely stunning, with each panel a masterclass in cartooning, foregrounding Crumb's hallmark style, trademark cityscapes, and world-famous iconography. A few more "Head Comix" pages were published in 1967, which eventually lead to the 1968 book R. Crumb's Head Comix by Viking Press. Due to the adult content in the second tier of panels, even when this strip has been reprinted it has sometimes been censored and/or that second tier was edited out. In short, this highly detailed masterpiece is a peak-period summation of not only all of Crumb's revolutionary art-thus quintessential Crumb-but a talisman of the entire Underground revolution in American art and culture! The incredible artwork also represents a very rare find, as it has resided in the same collection since the late 1960s, thus never appearing before at auction -- exactly the type of discovery that excites us the most! Created in ink over graphite, this piece has been glass front framed out to 17.75" x 21", with a matted image area of 11" x 14". There is a minor stain in Panel 15 and the edge of Panel 30. In overall Excellent condition. Hey Boparee Bop! Pure poetry from one of the greatest comic artists of all time! Provenance: From an Important East Coast Collection.

In a prequel to the forming of the original Defenders, Prince Namor gets a visit from the Master of the Mystic Arts. In a longstanding tradition of artists drawing graveyard scenes, the names of the penciler and inker appear on a tombstone along with the year 1969. The image area original art was produced in ink over graphite and blue pencil (with whiteout art corrections) on Bristol board and trimmed to the 10" x 15" image area before being affixed to a larger sheet of World Color cover stock Bristol board. The corner box, price/issue box, and logo are all stat paste-ups. The caption box is a hand-lettered paste-up. The bottom margin is signed by Marie Severin. In Excellent condition.

Marie Severin, Frank Giacoia, and John Romita Sr. Captain America #132 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1970). Bucky is seemingly back from the grave for the tale "The Fearful Secret of Bucky Barnes!" A striking cover from the ever-talented Marie Severin, it was originally created in graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15", which Frank Giacoia would ink. John Romita Sr., as Marvel's Art Director, is said to have done some art alterations on this cover. There is whiteout inked correction on Bucky's right arm and up through the boulder. There is also a separate section of original art correction that is inked. It was fitted over the MODOK figure in the bottom left of the image area. It seems it was held in place with the paste-up story title banner, and it was not affixed itself. As a result, now that it is loose, you can see Marie Severin's original blue pencil and graphite work beneath, with no stains. Gorgeous work, with a great Jack Kirby vibe to it. There is glue residue on the right where the banner was affixed, and on the separate section as well. Also there is glue residue for Bucky's missing word balloon just under the logo. The corner box, issue/price box, and logo are all stat paste-ups. There is a bit of production oil stain in the side and margins, and some tape holding on the logo. Signed by Marie Severin in the lower margin. Overall in Very Good condition.

Marie Severin and Frank Giacoia Captain America #125 Unused Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1970)....
Marie Severin and Frank Giacoia Captain America #125 Unused Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1970). This cover was completely dressed and ready to be published, but ultimately went unused. Very unusual for that much work to be done on it before the plug was pulled. The art team of "Sev-Giacoia" also produced the published cover for this issue. This piece for the story "Captured in Viet Nam!" was created in ink over blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box, header dressing, and logo are all printed paste-ups. The title on the lower section is hand-lettered on Bristol board, cut and trimmed and affixed to the board with production tape and glue (with residue near the title).

Gil Kane and Ernie Chan Fear #19 Cover Man-Thing Original Art (Marvel, 1973)....
Gil Kane and Ernie Chan Fear #19 Cover Man-Thing Original Art (Marvel, 1973). From the issue that gave the world Howard the Duck! This cover pits Man-Thing against Korrek the barbarian in a flip on the typical "barbarian-saves-damsel-in-distress" trope, as Manny is the main character instead. Unmistakable Gil Kane art, with Ernie Chan inks (who would produce many stories in Savage Sword of Conan in later years). The art was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with a slightly off-center image area. This was rectified by adding additional strips of paper on the left and bottom and continuing the image over them to an image area of 11" x 15.75". These additional strips have creases and handling wear. All of the cover is toned, and there are production oil stains in the top and side margins. Overall, in Very Good condition.

Murphy Anderson Justice League of America #17 Cover Original Art (DC, 1963)....
Murphy Anderson Justice League of America #17 Cover Original Art (DC, 1963). This cover featuring the second appearance of the Tornado Tyrant was similar to the cover of Mystery in Space #61 (which was his first appearance). Murphy Anderson drew and inked this one (he inked over Carmine Infantino on the MIS #61 cover). It features Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and the Atom! That's almost a complete JLA roll call. Of note, the Tornado Tyrant would later be ret-conned into the origin of the Red Tornado. This cover was created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". The price, CCA stamp, issue 3, and word "tyrant" are all replacement stats. The JLA logo seems to be a vintage stat with some stain, wrinkle, and minor tear in the lower left. There is glue residue and discoloration on the top right, and in the interior areas. In Very Good condition.

George Tuska Iron Man #20 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1969). The cover blurb "The Slave of Lucifer" answers the story title's question "Who Serves Lucifer?" The villain first appeared in X-Men #9, and in X-Men #20-21 it was explained that he was the cause of Professor X being in a wheelchair. This was his next appearance after that. The cover was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box, price/issue, and logo are all printed paste-up. The lower cover blurb is a hand-lettered paste-up with a bit of production tape on it. There is whiteout art correction in the background, and some production oil stains in the side, top, and on Lucifer's belt. There is also a glue residue stain near Iron Man's foot. In Very Good condition.

Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 1-21-86 (Universal Press Syndicate, 1986). The strip was only two months old when this daily was released. Fans know how rare an original Watterson Calvin and Hobbes comic strip really is... as rare as a talking tiger! Here, Calvin once again illustrates his "do it first, ask permission later" mentality. Clever and cute, this strip captivated readers from the start, and Watterson's fans are as loyal today as they were decades ago.

John Byrne and Terry Austin X-Men #138 Story Page 11 Original Art (Marvel, 1980). From the heartbreaking tale "Elegy", which was set during the funeral for Jean Grey. This issue was one of the most influential turning-point issues of the 1980s for Marvel Comics. Here, Scott Summers (aka Cyclops) remembers some of the team's long and complex history. This wonderful flashback page features images of Professor X, Havok, the Beast (in both primary and secondary-mutation form), and the "All-New, All-Different" X-Men... Nightcrawler, Storm, Colossus, Thunderbird, Wolverine, Banshee, and Sunfire! As a hidden bonus, the Thing of the Fantastic Four even makes a cameo appearance if you look hard enough. This bit of Marvel Comics' history was created in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". Panels 3 and 4 are a paste-up section of original art with paste-up text (that has discolored), with a bit of glue residue around the edges. There are stripped-in text corrections.

Moebius (Jean Giraud) Métal Hurlant #108 Story Page 26 Incal Original Art (Les Humanoides Associes, 1985). From the long-running series The Incal, this is the final page from the chapter "The Medusa Strategy" from The Incal Book 4 Ce Qui Est en Haut (What Is Above), which deals with the possible reunification of the Incal, a very significant part of the story arc. The Incal is an epic space opera blending fantastical intergalactic voyages, science, technology, political intrigue, conspiracies, messianism, mysticism, poetry, debauchery, love stories, and satire, written by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Moebius was one of the founders of Métal Hurlant, which begat the US version Heavy Metal. The Incal series began in France, and was reprinted in the US in a series of graphic novels by Marvel/Epic. This page was also reprinted in The Incal Classic Collection Book 4 What is Above by Humanoids, Inc., in 2013.

John Byrne and Terry Austin X-Men #138 Story Page 12 Original Art (Marvel, 1980). Scott Summers' ruminative recounting of the history of the X-Men picks up during the "All-New, All-Different" period and features the tragic death of Thunderbird. This was one of the few times that John Byrne drew this version of the team in action as events depicted happened in Giant-Size X-Men #1, and X-Men #95, before he took over art chores from Dave Cockrum. Pictured on the page are: Wolverine, Banshee, Sunfire, Jean Grey, Storm, Colossus, Thunderbird, Cyclops, Angel, and Nightcrawler. Also pictured are Count Nefaria and the Ani-Men.

Jack Kirby and George Roussos (as G. Bell) Fantastic Four #25 Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1964). The title to this story "The Hulk vs. The Thing" seems to have Ben Grimm crawling up the walls. The two titans first clashed in FF #12, and fans were clamoring for more. They were well-rewarded with the two-issue battle royale that began in this issue. This wonderful splash page features the entire team, with most of them using their powers (Sue is just looking pretty, but she's pretty good at that too). The twice-up page was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". In Excellent condition.

The first page of the story "The Immortal and the Mind-Slave!" gives us our first glimpse of Dr. Jim North, and promises "The Return of Jane Foster!"

Alex Ross Marvels #3 Painted Splash Page 30 Original Art (Marvel, 1994). Alex Ross was voted "Favorite Painter" in the CBG Fan Awards for so many years running that they simply retired the award. This page is from Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross' astonishing re-telling of the history of the Marvel Universe from the point of view of the "average guy". A compelling piece picturing a fateful meeting between the Fantastic Four and Galactus, at the point when his herald, the Silver Surfer, decided to aid Humanity instead of helping destroy it. A key moment in Marvel history with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. The fully painted page was created in gouache over graphite on art paper with an image area of 11.75" x 17.5".

This story had the first appearance of the Wasp, and this is the key page when Janet Van Dyne makes the fateful decision to become the superheroine. With a movie entitled "Ant-Man and the Wasp" coming to theaters in July 2018, it's safe to say the character is about to attain household name status. In addition to the significance of the page, the storytelling is quite wonderful as well. Note the poses in the final panel! Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.75". The tip of one corner is torn off. Pinholes. Excellent condition.

The Human Torch takes care of a wooden creature that the Miracle Man had brought to life, but then the Torch's flame is extinguished. The Thing's appearance is notable since he's wearing long pants, something he only did for this one issue. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.75". Slight toning of the board, and slight edge wear. Very Good condition.

Keith Pollard Official Marvel Index to the Amazing Spider-Man #8 Wraparound Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1985). Simply a stunning piece and a great tribute to Amazing Spider-Man stories from issue #175-195. Not surprising since the art is by Keith Pollard, who illustrated many of those issues.

Burne Hogarth Tarzan #636 Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-16-43 (United Feature Syndicate, 1943).

Gorgeously rendered in ink and red ink key lines over graphite on oversized Bristol board with an image area of 19.5" x 26.5". Of note: The Tarzan head in the logo panel is actually original art. It then became part of the logo/masthead and was used for a long time after. The art was hand-colored by Hogarth in April of 1994 (just two years before his death), when it was signed and personalized to Danton Burroughs (grandson of Edgar Rice Burroughs) in the logo panel. The colors are bright and vibrant. The original logo stat is ripped and coming un-stuck. It has been matted out to 25.75" x 32.5". In Excellent condition.

It's a page that is very similar to the issue's cover. These massive mythical men are testing their mettle over the love of Jane Foster in the tale "Whom the Gods Would Destroy!" The fact that this page was created at twice-up scale just makes the original art seem that much more "larger-than-life". Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of approximately 12.5" x 18.5". There is some whiteout text correction on the lightly toned page, and a bit of production tape on the "continued..." strip at the bottom. In Excellent condition.

Steve Ditko Eon Fanzine #3 Mr. A Splash Page Illustration Original Art (Robert Gustaveson, 1969). This one-page Mr. A story originally was published in Eon #3, but was later included in the 1985 The Ditko Collection #1 from Fantagraphics. This trade volume covered the years 1966-1973 for this inspired and influential comic creator. Mr. A was one of Ditko's more politically and socially conscious-minded characters. As evidenced by this piece, he practiced (and preached) a philosophy of strict "black and white/Good vs. Evil". Much of his rhetoric was in line with Ayn Rand's "Objectivism". Whatever your beliefs, this is a fine work from the man that also created the Question, Blue Beetle, Hawk and Dove, the Creeper, and is well-remembered for his work on on Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. This piece was created in ink over graphite on 8.75" x 11.75" Bristol board. Toned, with a bit of whiteout art correction. Text is hand-lettered paste-up. In Excellent condition.

Barry Windsor-Smith National Lampoon #26 May, 1972 "Norman the Barbarian" Faux Cover Original Art (National Lampoon Inc., 1972). Barry Windsor-Smith crafts a clever send-up of Marvel's Conan the Barbarian with this parody cover that was also a pot-shot at journalist and political activist Norman Mailer. His sidekick in the published story was Bresd-Lin, so this was a riff on Mailer's failed run for Mayor of New York City in 1969. Viewed now, the art is a refreshing look back to when BWS signed his work simply "Barry Smith". Even the trade dressing in the header is a spot-on imitation of Marvel Comics from the 1970s. Not surprising, as this was produced just 19 months after Conan the Barbarian #1 hit the stands, and was contemporaneous with Windsor-Smith's issue #15 "The Green Empress of Melniboné". A great piece of comic history and fine looking vintage Windsor-Smith art, created in ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10.25" x 14.5". The logo and logo figure are all hand-drawn original art. The header banner and issue/price box are stat paste-ups, as is the COCA stamp. The logo section was produced on a separate piece of Bristol that has been affixed to the lower image with tape on the reverse side. The text at the bottom is paste-up, and the printed signature is held on with production tape. The board is lightly toned, and there is glue residue in the image area just below the logo section. Staple in the top left corner, and production notes in the bottom margins. In Good condition.

Iron Man struggles to claim the Golden Globe, a mystical object, at stake in a cosmic battle waged by a cloaked badman known as the Black Lama. There's a fine reason why all those Iron Man movies of recent years have scored so well at the box office: They draw from such awe-inspiring source-material as this fine piece of artwork. Kane's bold radial composition is a keeper, and so is the inking by Giacoia, who applies the same high-contrast layers of black to this piece that he had used when inking Jack Kirby. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 10" x 15.75". Light toning and marginal staining; otherwise, in Excellent condition.

John Romita Sr. Daredevil #16 Story Page 7 Original Art (Marvel, 1966)....
John Romita Sr. Daredevil #16 Story Page 7 Original Art (Marvel, 1966). Not only was this issue chock-full of that great John Romita Sr. art, but it pre-dates his spectacular run on Amazing Spider-Man. In fact, one reason this is a historic issue is that the Issue #16-17 two-parter was a sort of try-out that lead to him taking over the Spider-Man book when Steve Ditko left. Although our friendly neighborhood Wallcrawler isn't on this page... his Spider-Signal sure is! Created twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". In Excellent condition.
