    Dick Ayers Tales to Astonish #27 Cover Recreation Original Art (1994). Produced during the winter of 1993-94, this cover was recreated from the original which was by Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers. A remarkable cover for the story "The Man in the Ant Hill", which was the origin story for a founding member of the Avengers, Hank Pym -- aka: Ant-Man, Giant-Man, Goliath, Yellowjacket, Dr. Pym, (and briefly) the Wasp. Ant-Man is starring in Avengers movies now, and has had his own movie as well, introducing the character to a whole new audience. This recreation cover was created in ink over graphite on oversized Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 19". It is accompanied by a COA Signed by Rosalind Kirby, Dick Ayers, and representatives of Marvel and Sotheby's. There is a slight crease in the lower left corner, a water stain on the lower right, and a small bit of foxing in the top right. In Very Good/Excellent condition. Signed by Dick Ayers at lower right, just below the image area.
