    Jack Kirby and John Romita Sr. The Invaders #3 Cover Captain America, Namor, Human Torch Original Art (Marvel, 1975). Marvel's biggest, and most enduring Golden Age superheroes (from the "Timely" age of Comics) are featured battling it out on this Kirby-riffic cover! Namor the Submariner and the Human Torch were both in Marvel Comics #1 in 1939, and Captain America turned up just a year later. Jack Kirby was already working in comics and is the co-creator for Cap. All of that adds up to one fantastic cover combination. And it's signed by Kirby in the image area. Created on standard stock World Color cover stock Bristol board, but the margins were whited-out to allow the art to run edge-to-edge on the 11.5" x 16.75" board. Rendered in ink over graphite. The entire corner box/header/logo section is a paste-up stat. This is a vintage stat, but not from this issue. It is actually the stat from issue #6 and was added to this cover art after-the-fact. The board is lightly toned, with a bit of glue residue in the top margin. In Excellent condition overall.
