Description

    Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta - Original Cover Art for Thor #148 (Marvel, 1968). It's covers like this that made Jack Kirby the "King" of comics. Crackling with power, alive with blistering battle action, this cover stands as a classic portrait of the Riotous Wrecker facing off with Sif, Balder, and The Mighty Thor. Presented in a large format, this piece measures approximately 17.5" x 23", with an approximate image area of 20.25" x 13.25", and is in excellent condition. There is some use of white-out on the cover and some editorial notations in the margins, but these do not affect the art in any way. Titles and logos are all stats, and the Thor figure, as well as Sif's hand, are paste-overs, but they are original inked art. Twice-up Kirby covers from this era are increasingly difficult to find, making this an even more desirable piece.
