    Description

    John Buscema and Dan Adkins Sub-Mariner #8 Sub-Mariner vs. the Thing Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). It's a clash of the Silver Age titans as the Thing faces off against the Sub-Mariner in this iconic John Buscema masterwork. Who will win? There are differences between this drama-drenched drawing and the final, printed cover; production artists most likely made their changes on a stat of this original drawing for the final image that appeared on the comic book. This piece has an image area of 9.75" x 14", and it has been matted to an overall size of 14" x 18.5". Replacement logo and caption type stats have been added to the top and bottom of the piece; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. A copy of the comic book is included in this lot.
