DescriptionCarmine Infantino and Bob Wiacek - Star Wars #48 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1981). Lightsabre drawn, Darth Vader easily deflects Princess Leia's attack in this spectacular face-off. Marvel's writers were careful not to overexpose Vader in the comic book, preferring to leave kids begging for more. That means that there are relatively few covers in existence that feature the Dark Lord of the Sith. Carmine Infantino is a recognized industry leader at designing captivating covers for comic books, and he also excels at science fiction subjects -- so he was an inspired choice for Star Wars cover artist. The art retains its original title logo and type stats, and is in Excellent condition. There are production notes along the borders, well outside of the art area. The image area measures 10" x 15".
