    Val Mayerik - Original Art for Young Master #9, Cover and Complete 20-page Story "Fear and Sin" (New Comics Group, 1989). Often we sell complete stories, and often we sell covers. But it's not often that we have a complete story and the cover, and that's what we have here: the final issue to Larry Hama and Val Mayerik's Young Master, which began his stories in the 1970s Warren magazines. The story, titled "Fear and Sin," involves the eponymous Young Master wandering into a village, and explores the powerful effect his mere presence has on the local villagers. If you're a fan of the Samurai genre, this issue is a treat -- the story is gripping and the artwork is top-notch, and is enhanced by ink wash shading. The interior pages measure 14.5" x 22.5" and the cover measures a giant 20" x 30".
