    Description

    Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta Thor #154 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). A striking and highly-memorable cover by the royal team of Jack "The King" Kirby and Vince "The Prince" Colletta! The colors on the printed cover did the background in a solid green to make Thor almost jump right off the page at you. Here, you don't have that to distract your eye from the highly-detailed and character-stuffed background. It features Loki, Ulik, Mangog, Hela (star of Thor: Ragnarok), Doctor Don Blake, Lady Sif, Karnilla the Queen of the Norns, and Balder the Brave. This was Kirby at a peak period, turning out fantastic art like nobody's business. Created in ink over graphite on Curtiss Way Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The main image is on one sheet of Bristol, the bottom 1.5" is original art on another affixed to the back, and the paste-up corner box and logo are affixed to another section (with some original art) affixed to the top of the main board. There is a bit of a production oil stain in the middle left side, into Loki's figure. There's also light toning and some whiteout art correction in places. The boards are production two-hole-punched in the top and bottom margins. In Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
