DescriptionJim Starlin, John Buscema, and Frank Giacoia Defenders #4 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1973). Jim Starlin provided the cover layout rough, from which John Buscema penciled for Frank Giacoia's inks. The cover features Doctor Strange, Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner, the Hulk, and Valkyrie (astride winged Aragorn). With that much talent and this many heroes, this is one star-studded cover! With Doctor Strange's solo movie crushing it in the box office, the Hulk a favored member of the big screen Avengers franchise, and even Valkyrie showing up in Thor: Ragnarok (played by Tessa Thompson), and a Defenders TV series (with all different characters) upcoming on Netflix, this cover has some media-pull going for it also. Crafted in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". Brunhilde's cape is created in whiteout and blue pencil as an art correction. Her arm and spear were inked on onionskin paper and taped in place. The entire header/logo is a stat paste-up that is coming loose. All text were paste-ups, with one word balloon ("Your foes attack -- and you puny males are too weak to stand against them!") and the bottom caption box ("Valkyrie Rides Again!") missing. There is a touch of production oil stain in each side margin, and a bit in the lower image area. With overall toning and handling wear, this is in Very Good condition.
