Description

    Steve Lightle - Avengers Spotlight #35 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1990). Gilgamesh has always been an anonymous and unappreciated adventurer, as he has been for much of his millennia-long life. Suddenly, a sorcerer publically challenges him, and is quickly defeated. The media misinterprets the victory as a pointless rampage on Gilgamesh's part, but the hero takes some comfort in having gotten some publicity for once, even if it is bad. This scenario is the setting for this cover, in which Gilgamesh struggles valiantly beneath the claw of a huge dragon, up to his head and shoulders in mystic flame. Steve Lightle's art is dynamically staged and matchlessly realized, and he accompanies his great inking with blue pencil shading and red marker color indications. Includes the original title type overlay and a mock-up overlay of the logo and indicia. The image area measures 9.75" x 15" and is in Excellent condition.
