Description

    Gil Kane and Frank Giacoia Invaders #21 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1977). Marvel's Invaders was a great idea -- telling new stories set during World War II, featuring Golden Age "Timely" versions of Captain America, Sub-Mariner, and the original Human Torch. On this action-packed cover (and boy, do we mean action-packed!), it appears that Human Torch's kid sidekick Toro has been killed during an intense battle (don't worry kids, he's only wounded), while Cap and Subby battle those nasty Nazis (with a little help from Spitfire). Good stuff! The art is in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 9.75" x 15". All logo masthead items and pasted-on captions are original, and although some appear to be coming loose, they're all there. There's a lengthy note written on the back, pointing out that one of Cap's Nazi enemies was covered by whiteout (behind Cap's shield), which can be made out when the art is held up to a light. The overall condition we'll call Very Good -- there are assorted small stains and a piece of tape holding the masthead, and the board has tanned somewhat -- but impact-wise, this one hits it out of the ballpark!
