    Bill Everett, Werner Roth, and Vince Colletta - Tales to Astonish #96 Complete 12-page Sub-Mariner story "Somewhere Stands Skull Island" Original Art (Marvel, 1967). Imperious Rex! The regal Namor, Sub-Mariner and Lord of Atlantis, battles the menace of the pilfering Plunderer in this Silver Age masterwork of marine magnificence. Bill Everett penciled the exploits of his famous hero (though Werner Roth guest-penciled panels two through four of page nine and all of page ten) and Vince Colletta laid down the inks for this pulse-pounding thriller. The image area of each page measures 12" x 18.5". Page one has pasted-on caption type and a few pieces have slipped of the caption at the lower left; page two has a pasted-on art correction in the final panel; panel two of page three has a hole where a word balloon was cut out; and there is heavy use of white-out on each page; otherwise the art averages Good condition. Excelsior!
