    Gil Kane and Ernie Chan Fear #19 Cover Man-Thing Original Art (Marvel, 1973). From the issue that gave the world Howard the Duck! This cover pits Man-Thing against Korrek the barbarian in a flip on the typical "barbarian-saves-damsel-in-distress" trope, as Manny is the main character instead. Unmistakable Gil Kane art, with Ernie Chan inks (who would produce many stories in Savage Sword of Conan in later years). The art was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with a slightly off-center image area. This was rectified by adding additional strips of paper on the left and bottom and continuing the image over them to an image area of 11" x 15.75". These additional strips have creases and handling wear. All of the cover is toned, and there are production oil stains in the top and side margins. Overall, in Very Good condition.
