    John Byrne and Tom Palmer Marvel Team-Up #70 Cover Spider-Man and Thor Original Art (Marvel, 1978). In the summer of 1978, John Byrne was burnin' it up over on the X-Men. An exciting image from Byrne's heyday era, this was also a rare Thor image, as Byrne had not drawn Thor very often before this issue. This cover also has an X-Men connection, as the villain is the Living Monolith, who first appeared in X-Men #54, where he had tapped Havok as a power source. The cover was crafted in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The corner box, all logos, the header bar, and all cover text are stat paste-ups. There is a slit in the board around Spider-Man to allow the logo to slide behind him (taped from the reverse), and there are multiple production oil stains in the image area and margins. Overall the toned board is in Very Good condition.
