    Gene Colan and Bill Everett - Tales to Astonish #88 Sub-Mariner Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1967). When Gene Colan took on the Sub-Mariner storyline in Tales to Astonish, he quickly modernized the layouts and pacing of the storytelling to fit more comfortably into Marvel's ongoing Silver Age revolution. Colan's powerful pencils are given a fine finish by the Sub-Mariner's creator, artist Bill Everett. This is a power-packed image that possesses an almost iconic appeal. The readers have a front row seat to this battle royal. Everett's black areas at the top and bottom of this scene create a nice framing technique for the powerful image. This dynamic cover has an image area of 13" x 20". The piece has areas with corrective white out, and the caption box at the bottom has been glued in place; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. Imperius Rex!
