Description

    Jim Starlin and Klaus Janson Iron Man #68 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1974). Jim Starlin, architect of some of Marvel's greatest Bronze Age space opera epics, produced this cover and even signed in the lower margin. The shocking secret of Iron Man's mask? It had a nose piece finally... oh, and it allowed him to mentally control his weapons system. Yep, this was the beginning of the on-board "Jarvis" software that you see in the movies. A later issue's letters page included a letter from Jerry Ordway indicating Dave Cockrum inks; however, Bob McLeod was Klaus Janson's assistant and verified the Janson attribution. Clean lined and sleek, this great looking art was produced in ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The logo, corner box, and all cover text are stat paste-ups. There is toning, handling wear, with a tiny rip in the side margins, and a bit of an abrasion on Sunfire's elbow. Overall, in Very Good condition.
