Description

    Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta - Thor #148 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). It's covers like this that made Jack Kirby the "King" of Marvel comics. Crackling with power, bristling with blistering battle action, this Silver Age sensation stands as a pulse-pounding portrait of the wrathful Wrecker facing off against Sif, Balder, and the Mighty Thor. Presented in a large format, this "twice-up" piece measures approximately 17.5" x 23" overall, with an approximate image area of 13.5" x 20.25". There is some use of white-out on the cover and some editorial notations in the margins, but these do little to detract from the overall eye-appeal of this art. The titles and logos are stats. The Thor figure and Sif's hand are paste-ons, but these elements are original inked art, not stats; otherwise, the cover is in Excellent condition. "Twice-up" Kirby covers from the Silver Age are extremely difficult to find, making this a super-special piece.
