    Larry Lieber and George Roussos (as L. D. Lieber and G. Bell) Tales of Suspense #51 Complete 5-Page Story "The Primitive" Original Art (Marvel, 1964). Uatu, the Watcher usually appeared in the Fantastic Four; however, he also had his own back-up series known as "Tales of the Watcher". This clever device allowed Marvel to continue to produce strange sci-fi stories that had proved popular in their other anthology titles, while still anchoring them firmly in the budding and rapidly expanding Marvel Universe. This five-pager was set in "the future" of the 21st Century. Created twice-up scale in ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". Page 1 has a small stain in the upper right margin, and a small bend in the upper left margin. Page 2 has a small production oil stain in Panel 4, and Page 5 has production oil stains on the reverse side. Overall, in Excellent condition.
