    Description

    Ron Frenz and Mike Esposito - Original Cover Art for Marvel Team-Up #137 (Marvel, 1984). From the "you gotta be kidding" department comes this extraordinary cover, penciled by Ron Frenz, of Peter Parker's Aunt May and Mr. and Mrs. Fantastic's son, Franklin Richards, in a face-off with the world-devouring Galactus. Aunt May becomes the new Herald of Galactus, and she and Franklin seek out the universe's largest Twinkie. Inked by Mike Esposito, this handsome cover art is a hilarious poke-in-the-ribs on the superhero genre. The overall page size is 11" x 17.5" with a 10" x 15" image area. The art is very clean, with a very small amount of white-out used on Galactus' mouth. Includes the original logo, type, and indicia paste-ups.
