    Don Heck - Avengers #37 Unpublished Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1967). Don Heck's professional career began in 1949 when he started working in the production department of Harvey Comics. Soon he graduated to penciling, and after a memorable stint at New Media Comics, he became a mainstay at Marvel, drawing mystery, Western, and war stories. When the House of Ideas began its Silver Age superhero revolution, Don Heck's first major success as a superhero artist was the legendary Iron Man origin story in Tales of Suspense #39. He then drew a few early stories featuring Thor and Giant Man, but for most Marvelites, it's Heck's long run on The Avengers for which he is most fondly remembered. This cover is an unpublished work created for The Avengers #37, with the title of "To Conquer a Colossus." Captain America, Goliath, Hawkeye, the Scarlet Witch, Black Widow, and the Wasp all attack the Colossus in unison -- he's toast! The title logo and other type elements are a carefully color-matched stat addition, and the art is in Excellent condition. The overall paper size is approximately 15.5" x 22.5" with an image area of 13.5" x 20.25".
