Description:
Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott Journey Into Mystery #83 First Appearance of Thor and his Enchanted Hammer Mjolnir page 8 Original Art (Marvel, 1962). Let the trumpets blare, and the banners wave -- and behold this landmark, first look at the power of Mjolnir -- Thor's enchanted and all-powerful hammer. Pages of this rarity, cultural importance, and graphic perfection almost defy description. Suffice it to say, only Jack "King" Kirby and his inker supreme, Joe Sinnott, could create a page of such intensity and majesty -- and as a result, the Marvel Age of Heroes took a quantum leap ahead on its way to winning the hearts and minds of the comic book reading public. This sublime page hailing from the mighty Thor's first appearance is certain to be the ne plus ultra of any Jack Kirby or Marvel art fan's collection. This museum-worthy Marvel milestone has an image area of 12.5" x 18.5", and the piece is in Excellent condition. From the Dr. Mark Miller Collection.

Kirby, Jack: Jack Kirby (American, 1917-1994) : Jack Kirby has received world-wide recognition for his long comic book career and accomplishments. He is regarded by historians and fans as one of the major innovators and most influential creators in the comic-book medium, thus earning the nick-name "King." Among Kirby's many co-creations are Captain America, the Newsboy Legion, the Challengers of the Unknown, the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Thor, the Avengers, the X-Men, Silver Surfer, the New Gods, and countless other memorable heroes and villains.
