Description

    Rob Liefeld and Todd McFarlane The New Mutants #88 Cable, Blob, and Pyro Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1989). Two of the titans of nineties comic art, and key members in the band of visionaries who broke away from Marvel to found Image Comics, teamed to created this thriller. Freedom Force member the Blob has the drop on Cable and a fallen Pyro -- proving that while the Blob may be big, he can still be stealthy. The controversial Rob Liefeld is renowned for turning this lowest-selling title of the X-franchise into a financial success, and this, only the fourth New Mutants cover penciled by Liefeld and masterfully inked by comics legend Todd McFarlane, has an image area of 9.75" x 15". The head and shoulders of Cable are a carefully cut out photostat correction (with the original art under the stat), and the title logo is on an acetate overlay; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. Signed in pencil by Rob Liefeld in its lower center margin. From the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection.
