    Bob Layton Hercules: Full Circle Unused Graphic Novel Wraparound Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1988). After Bob Layton had completed this cover for his first Hercules graphic novel, Marvel broke the bad news to him that he was not allowed to do wrap-around covers on graphic novels. Layton wrote, "After I lamented the enormous waste of time, I tossed it into a box and went on with the show. And there it sat -- until today. All in all, I personally like this cover better than the final, published version". This original cover features a different take on the published cover, featuring The Lion of Olympus, and his pals, Skyppi the Skrull, and Recorder #417. The image area measures 21" x 15" and the art is in Excellent condition. After the fact, someone has recreated the logo and some of the other cover elements on an acetate overlay to give us a taste of the "what might have been". This flip-up acetate is easily removable.
