    Gene Colan and Frank Giacoia - Original Cover Art for Daredevil #27 (Marvel, 1967). Gene Colan's career on Daredevil and Tomb of Dracula has always been much admired by Marvel maniacs, and this cover certainly shows why. Inked with rich, moody blacks by Frank Giacoia, Daredevil is ready to kick some arch-villains in the anatomy. And if Spider-Man, in one of his early crossover appearances, gets in the way then too bad for him! Please note that one of staffers here felt that the inks might be by John Romita, but we are listing it with the more conservative attribution of the very talented inker, Frank Giacoia. If you think this art looks different from the published comic, then give yourself a prize. After the original art had been drawn, Stan Lee decided that Spidey needed to be moved to the left (you can see the editorial notes in the margin), and so photostats were made and pasted over the inked artwork. These stats have been professionally removed and replaced with recreations of the logo and caption stats to allow the new owner to see the piece as it was originally drawn. So now you're probably thinking, "Darn, I wish I could get those original stats too." Sleep soundly tonight, o anxious one, because, as a bonus, this lot includes all of the original stats. A twice-up Daredevil cover would be highly desirable without Spidey, but with him, the sky's the limit! 17" x 22". Image size is approximately 13" x 20".
