Description

Dave Cockrum Iron Fist #15 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1977). It's Iron Fist vs the X-Men, in this incredible, action-packed cover penciled and inked by the late, great Cockrum. Wow! For this final issue of the original Iron Fist series, Dave really pulled out all the stops to provide the best cover image yet for this martial arts master's comic. The action takes place along the same time frame as X-Men #109, with Wolverine sporting his "fang" costume, and the fight begins when Iron Fist visits Jean Grey's roommate, Misty, as a moody Logan lurks nearby. When Jean gets a bowl of party dip in the face, all hell breaks loose!
Dave Cockrum was a fan favorite beginning with his early work published in fanzines. His art for DC's Legion of Super Heroes stories in Superboy really caught the fans' attention, and his subsequent work on Marvel's new X-Men line up in Giant-Size X-Men #1 made him a superstar. Heritage is proud to present this prime piece of Cockrum art featuring the uncanny X-Men. The ink and white out art is on slightly trimmed comic bristol, with an image area of 9.75" x 15". Cockrum filled every inch of space save the UPC code box; the logo and all type elements have been removed for the page, and display every line of art. Glue stains from the pasted-on stats are present but in no way diminish the power of the artwork, and other than the staining, the page is in Excellent condition. It's Marvel action as you like it, delivered by one of the best in the business -- 'nuff said!

Cockrum, Dave:Dave Cockrum was born in Pendleton, Oregon, the son of an Air Force officer. After spending six years in the U.S. Navy, he moved to New York and accepted a job at Warren Publishing, his first professional work. After Warren, Cockrum became a background inker for Murphy Anderson at DC comics. Eventually, he got his first big break, landing the dream job of penciling the Legion of Superheroes. His groundbreaking work on The Legion's character designs and costume changes lasted for over a decade. His tenure at DC was short lived however, as a dispute led him to work at Marvel. At the House of Ideas, Cockrum co-created, along with Len Wein, The New X-Men, the franchise that went on to give Marvel enormous financial success in the following decades, introducing such characters such as Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm, and Mystique. He later went on to create the comic book, The Futurians, which had a short run as a monthly series and then as a trade paperback. In his later years he drew covers for the Blackhawk relaunch, and worked for Valiant, Defiant, Broadway and Claypool Comics. Dave Cockrum suffered from diabetes and finally succumbed to his illness on November 26th, 2006 . Comic Art
