    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers Tales to Astonish #25 Complete 7-page Story Original Art (Marvel, 1961). The imaginative character, costume, and technology designs of Jack Kirby are legendary in the fields of comic books, film, and fantasy, and they are all delightfully displayed in this amusing chiller, "I Was Captured by the Creature From Krogarr," from the early sixties. As for the plot of this romp, the monster mavens at Monster Blog summarize it thusly, "A flaky, deadbeat husband gets the shock of his life as he's dragged off to certain death on the planet Krogarr. Joe Hanson describes himself as a 'happy-go-lucky guy' whose beleaguered wife has to tolerate his carefree ways. When the power company cuts the juice to Joe and Clara's pad due to unpaid bills, it saves Joe's -- and all mankind's -- behind." It's a post-Code twist ending, Marvel-style. Each page of this offbeat yarn has an image area of 12.5" x 18.5", and the pages average Excellent condition.
