DescriptionNeal Adams - Original Cover Art for Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu #2 (Marvel, 1974). Back when everyone was "kung-fu crazy" as a result of the hit television series starring David Carradine, Marvel's mighty magazine, Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu, was on a lot of reading lists! The distinctive cover to issue #2, drawn by Neal Adams, is our offering in this lot. This fantastic piece is sure to generate intense bidding, as it has been "off the market" in private hands for many years now. Despite the Overstreet claim that this is a "painted" cover, it is actually inked and colored (by an unidentified colorist -- perhaps Adams himself) in the tradition of Adams' famous superhero art. It is truly a powerful illustration, with trademark Adams action in every brushstroke. It's a large signed piece, measuring approximately 14.5" x 23", and is in excellent condition. And as before, it's likely to wind up in a private collection, with little chance of re-entering the market anytime soon. Make sure your collection becomes its next home!

I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.View More Testimonials
