DescriptionJohn Buscema and Tom Palmer Avengers #78 Man-Ape Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1970). Even in defeat, the bravery of Captain America and the Black Panther is spotlighted in this magnificent Marvel masterwork, the cover for "The Man-Ape Always Strikes Twice." Buscema's superlative figure work opened up new vistas of glory for the Avengers title and helped cement his reputation as one of the key artists at Marvel Comics. Buscema's art set the standard for the "House of Ideas" after Jack Kirby departed in 1970. First-rate inker Tom Palmer adds the perfect Bronze Age finish to this piece. This show-stopping spectacular has an approximate image area of 10" x 15". The main scene and type element on this cover have been collaged together to on a piece of support paper to create the composition, and there is some yellowed Zipatone; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.

I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.View More Testimonials
