    Ed Hannigan Rom #1 Unpublished Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1979). This gorgeous and very detail-rich cover piece was produced for the cover of ROM #1. If you look closely in the windows of a building in the background, you will see where Hannigan put his name and Al Milgrom's name. Presumably Milgrom was tapped to ink this piece when finished. There were some layout problems, as detailed in the hand-written note to Milgrom in the bottom margin, and the faint note on the artwork that says "You want to do some thing with this leg? It looks wrong." This art seems to have instead served as the inspiration for the greatly simplified Frank Miller/Joe Rubinstein piece that was on the published comic instead. Pure pencils on paper, with an image area of 10.5" x 14.5". It is glass front framed to 17" x 20.5". Lightly tanned, in Excellent condition.
