Description:
Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers Journey Into Mystery #88 "The Vengeance of Loki" Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). Let the trumpets blare, and the banners wave -- and behold this Marvel masterwork, a first look at the showdown between the Mighty Thor and his evil half-brother Loki in the trickster God's second appearance, "The Vengeance of Loki." Pages of this rarity, cultural importance, and graphic perfection almost defy description. Suffice it to say, only Jack "King" Kirby and his inker extraordinaire, Dick Ayers, could create a page of such intensity and tension -- and as a result, the Marvel Age of Heroes took another giant stride on its way to winning the hearts and minds of the comic book reading public. This awesome splash page hailing from the mighty Thor's never-ending battle against Loki is certain to be the piece de resistance 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.
