    Sal Buscema Avengers #89 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1971). A classic and well remembered cover for Part 1 of the famed "Kree-Skrull War" story, featuring four characters that have been figuring prominently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe lately! They are Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell of the Kree), the Scarlet Witch and the Vision, and Quicksilver (sorry Rick Jones, maybe you will get a series someday)! The story "The Only Good Alien..." was the kick-off for this 9-part cosmic epic that is considered by many fans to be The Avengers' greatest story arc. The cover art was created in ink over graphite on World Color Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". All of the masthead text, the logo, and the corner box are modern-day re-creations affixed with thick, shiny glue directly to the artwork. The board has staple and pinholes in the top margin, and some minor production stains in the upper right and lower left of the image area. There is a missing text stat in the lower left, leaving vintage glue residue. The replacement logo and text are surrounded by excess glue stains. The piece also has corner dings and wear, and three large creases in the image area (one is visible through Mar-Vell's arm, torso, and leg, and another runs diagonally through the Scarlet Witch). In Very Good condition.
