Description

    Jim Steranko The Jack Kirby Collector #11 Stuntman Cover Illustration Original Art (TwoMorrows, 1996). In 1973, Jim Steranko commissioned Jack Kirby to draw one of his most colorful heroes for Supergraphics' History Of Comics Calendar. Kirby penciled the definitive Stuntman pin-up with the same energy he used for Captain America and Fighting American, two similar characters with a penchant for spectacular acrobatic action. In 1996, Steranko inked that image onto acetate for the cover of The Jack Kirby Collector #11. He later rendered a fully painted color version on a separate board, and then combined those two pieces of art (similar to the creation of an animation cel and its background) into a single unit, which was then mounted under Plexiglas and double-matted. This image represents a rare milestone of collaboration between two comic book legends and a first in this format. This unique piece has an image area of 9" x 12", and it has been matted to an overall size of 13.5" x 17". The piece is in Excellent condition.
