    John Byrne The Thing #7 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1984). One of the wackiest John Byrne covers you will ever find! The Thing gets stomped by... Goody Two-Shoes (who looked suspiciously like the Kip's Big Boy)! The story "Two-Fisted Feet!" was a result of "Assistant Editor's Month". The gag was that while all of Marvel's editors were at the San Diego Comic Con, they had left their assistant editors in charge. As a result, most Marvel books published in January of 1994 ranged from being quite humorous to downright silly! The "She-Thing" in the corner box is a caricature of Assistant Editor Ann Nocenti as the Thing. The cover is ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The corner box and logo are a stat on an acetate overlay. The cover is signed by Marvel's Editor-in-Chief, Jim Shooter, in the sign-off box in the bottom margin. In Excellent condition.
