    Gil Kane and John Romita - Original Cover Art for Adventure Into Fear #22 (Marvel, 1978). Michael Morbius is a Nobel Prize winning biochemist, who just happens to have a rare blood disease. In the search for a cure, he turned himself into Morbius, the living vampire. We present here from Adventure Into Fear, a late 70s Marvel Comics series, a great cover by two eternally-talented artists, penciller Gil Kane and inker John Romita. Morbius has a death-grip on the Cat-Demon while a lovely barbarian girl looks on. There is some slight discoloration and yellowing along the edges and at the bottom left where a paste-up overlay is no longer attached. Still a tremendous piece of art from two comic book art titans. Overall size is 11" x 17" with an image area of 10" x 15". Signed by John Romita at the bottom right.
