    Don Heck - Original Unused Cover Art for X-Men #38 (Marvel, 1967). This is a dynamic image from one of the pioneers of the Marvel Age of comics, Don Heck. His heavy use of black areas creates a stage-like background for the characters that engages the viewer with all of the power of a tragic opera.You can almost here the Blob singing, "Kill the Angel. Kill the Angel......" This image is very successful without the clutter of paste up title and text stats but, for those who enjoy the production quality of an original piece of art, stats have been reproduced and put on a clear acetate overlay to show what it would have looked like as a finished cover image. The MCG logo is an original pasted up stat. This outstanding piece is in excellent condition with only minor surface wear and a three quarter inch tear in the upper left margin area. It measures a large 14.75" x 22" and has an image area of 13.25" x 20".
