    Description

    Frank Miller Ronin #5 Story Page 21 Original Art (DC, 1983). This page was wordless in the comic, relying on the incredible art to tell the story. And the page is quite a find! Not only had we never seen art from an issue other than #1 before, we were pleasantly surprised to find the original art is slightly larger than Miller's work on #1.
    Frank Miller's Ronin changed the direction of comics with its prestige mini-series format, combined with the fact that it was the first modern feature where DC allowed the creator to retain the rights to the character. Ronin has since been celebrated as among the most important and influential stories ever published. Miller is arguably the greatest superhero writer/artist to work during this period, and Ronin helped launch a much-needed comics revolution -- many feel that there would be no Sandman, Watchmen, or Dark Knight, without this visionary work leading the way. And just as Frank Miller drew some inspiration in part from the various works of Moebius, and from Goseki Kojima's work on Lone Wolf and Cub, so too has Miller's Ronin inspired countless other creators, among them Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame.
    And unlike many pages from Miller's other '80s works, the art here is pure Frank Miller, making this a rare treat indeed.
    Crafted in ink over graphite on DC Bristol board with an image area of 11.75" by 17.75". Slight toning. The second panel is pieced in and held by tape on the back. Light smudging and handling wear. Very Good condition.
