    Marie Severin and John Romita - Not Brand Echh #3 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1967). From the heart of the Silver Age comes this uproarious cover from mirthful Marie Severin, spotlighting the origins of Charlie America, the Inedible Bulk, and the Mighty Sore! Not Brand Ecch lampooned mighty Marvel's world-famous creations and true believers everywhere ate it up and begged for more. Much of this cover's image was created using photostats. The central figures were grouped on a large photostat, but there are patches of original art corrections in each of these figures. The background details were extended with original art to the edges of the cover image. The original art patches are found on Sore's cape, to the left and under his hammer arm, on Charlie America's trashcan lid shield, and on the Bulk's backside where his suspenders are attached to his pants, and also on his mop-top hairdo above his eyebrows and ear. The two caption blurbs under the title logo are original hand-lettered art. The Marvel character box at the upper left with the weary stork carrying the baby heroes is also original art. John Romita may have had a hand in the art corrections as he has signed the page at the lower left. Marie Severin has signed the cover at the lower right. The cover has an image area of 13" x 20" and the top edge of the paper was trimmed right to the image area; otherwise the art is in Good condition. A photocopy of Marie Severin's cover rough art as it existed before the photostat of the main figures was laid on top is included in this lot. Make yours Marvel with this side-splitting Not Brand Echh cover!
