    Description

    John Romita - Original Comic Book Cover for Captain America #140 (Marvel, 1971). The ol' red white and blue gets a little black and blue in this magnificent opus by Marvel powerhouse John Romita. Captain America and the Falcon vs. the Gargoyle in another thrill-a-minute cover by one of the all time greats. Romita's robust figure work and in-your-face action hallmark this gorgeous gem from 1971. Some miscellaneous stains on the upper right and lower left sides. Some extensive white-out on Captain America and the Gargoyle's cape, but it is endearing to see what steps Romita would take to create a perfect final illustration. Overall size is 11 1/2" x 16 1/2", image area is 10" x 15". Signed by John Romita.
