DescriptionJack Kirby Tales of Suspense #78 Unpublished Alternate Captain America and Nick Fury Cover Pencils Original Art (Marvel, c. 1966). Twice-up Marvel cover art has been notoriously difficult to obtain over the years. A large Jack "King" Kirby, super-hero cover, especially one showcasing Captain America and Nick Fury, is next to impossible. In this explosive pencil drawing from 1968, it's double the thrills as our heroes are caught in a chemical android attack by "THEM." Offered here is a truly unbeatable combination -- Kirby, the undisputed "King" of comics, and his most legendary co-creation, the First Avenger. For this slam-bang alternate scene, The "King" penciled his dramatic Marvel Age "cover hook" as a "reverse angle" of the published scene -- with the hallmarked Kirbytech menace facing front, rather than the two heroes. This super-scarce piece of vintage Marvel lore, measuring an overall size of 14" x 23", has been cleaned, and some faint rubber cement staining can scarcely be seen. Carefully value-matched (light grey) logo and text replacements have been added to the drawing to simulate added cover-appeal; otherwise, this Silver Age showpiece presents as Very Good condition.
