    Jim Aparo Adventure Comics #451 Aquaman Cover Original Art (DC, 1977). Starro the Conqueror (the Justice League of America's first foe, as seen on the cover of The Brave and the Bold #28) is back to bedevil Aquaman, in this Bronze Age beauty of a cover, penciled and inked by the late Jim Aparo.

It's drawn in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 9.75" x 15"; other than the tape holding down some effects lettering (done by the artist), the page is in Excellent condition. The art is housed in a frame with Plexiglas measuring 19.5" x 26". The frame does have a few dings.
