    Jack Kirby and Frank Giacoia Tales of Suspense #84 Captain America Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1966). One of the very best things about the Silver Age of Marvel Comics was the reintroduction of Golden Age Timely hero Captain America, and Jack Kirby's mid-sixties run of stories in Tales of Suspense still thrills comic lovers today. There are few things more appealing to a collector of original superhero comic artwork than a cover by the King, and this particular piece will certainly not disappoint. Cap is in a great action pose here, ready to throw a mighty punch at the Super-Adaptoid. The artwork has some professional restoration, including skimming the Kirby art from a piece of illustration board, and attaching to a backing board with photocopied keyline Marvel/Curtiss art board graphics. The masthead and white-on-black type box were replaced on the art with photo copies; the original masthead, itself a photo print, is included with the cover. Kirby's image area measures approximately 13.25" x 13.75", while the overall cover image is 15.5" x 22". Artwork in ink and graphite, in Very Good condition. Make Mine Marvel!
