DescriptionDave Cockrum - Nova #7 Unpublished Alternate Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1977). A bold variant of the published cover, this unused version was nixed by a critical Marv Wolfman. His note to Jack Kirby, who drew the final, published version reads, "Jack, buildings look phony. Men should be cops. Nova is too old. He's 17. Cover needs more tension. Marv Wolfman." Comparing this cover to the published version, Jack Kirby remained quite faithful to Dave Cockrum's design. Apparently "the King" thought more of it than Wolfman did. A power-packed portrait of Nova, this cover has an approximate image area of 10" x 15". The title, price, and date logos are absent; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. Dave Cockrum signed the piece twice at the lower left, and Marv Wolfman signed the piece at the lower right.
