    Description

    Marie Severin and Frank Giacoia (attributed) Tower of Shadows #3 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1970). What happens at midnight in the Wax Museum, stays in the Wax Museum! A wonderful horror-filled cover penciled by Marie Severin. Per her personal note in the bottom margin, the inks were credited to Frank Giacoia; although some credible sources feel this is the ink work of John Romita, Sr. On the published cover the figures were largely obscured in shadow, so it's nice to see them in all their glory for the first time! Created in ink over graphite and and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". On the reverse side of the page there is a small prelim sketch in graphite and ink. The corner box and logo are a large stat that was pasted on at one point, but is held in place by tape now. The bottom caption box is paste-up. In Very Good condition, with toning, whiteout correction, and minor production oil stains.
