    Dick Ayers and John Severin Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos Annual #4 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). This King Size Special issue sported a fantastic cover featuring Nick Fury, Dum Dum Dugan, Percy Pinkerton, and the rest of the unit as they prepare to kick some Nazi butt! The page was created in ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The page was jiggered around some during production. After the art was finished, it was trimmed to border, the slid up in the frame, with a strip of new art created on the Bristol board below it. Also, the planes on the logo were freed from the original art and moved up some before being pasted back down. The "King Size Special" banner is a separate paste-up section, as is the logo, corner box, and cover blurb burst. Signed in the image area by both artists, it is also signed by Ayers in the lower margin. There is glue residue near the paste-ups, and a bit of production tape in places. Overall in Very Good condition.
