    John Romita Sr. and Ernie Chan - Creatures on the Loose #24 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1973). In the pages of Creatures on the Loose, Marvel published the adventures of Lin Carter's adventurer, mercenary, and thief, who eventually became king -- Thongor, Warrior of Lost Lemuria. In a cover illustration bristling with primal energy, the great John Romita Sr. tackles a savage panorama of Thongor vs. a bloodthirsty flying reptile -- it's sword and sorcery as only magnificent Marvel can present it! Included here are two pieces -- Romita's original hand-drawn cover, which was inked by Ernie Chan, and a photocopy of that art which has been altered with subtle changes in the area of the serpent's head (the final printed version is a variation of this variation). Both pieces have image areas of 10" x 15", include the original logo paste-ups, and are in Excellent condition.
