    Description

    George Tuska - Original Art for Captain Marvel Adventures #2, Complete 12-page Story (Spider-Men From Mars) (Fawcett, 1941). This may be one of the earliest examples of a complete original Golden Age story to ever surface. The historical merits of this item alone will make it a treasured part of any collection. Add the fact that it contains some of George Tuska's earliest art on a really cool story that features Captain Marvel battling invaders from Mars, and you have something that is likely to attain "grail" status among collectors world wide. While George Tuska is most famous for his work on Iron Man, this early work has a diverse quality to it that is interesting to look at. His varied inking techniques become compositional elements that help "fill" the negative space left by his minimalistic style. These pages were rendered on rigid pieces of 15" x 20" illustration board that are in nice shape with minor corner wear. The first page has light staining on the top half and there are moderate printing notations and use of white out through out the story. An item of this caliber is unlikely to come along again.
