    Gil Kane Blackmark Paperback Graphic Novel Illustration Story Pages Original Art Group of 4 (Bantam Books, 1971). The saga of Blackmark started in a paperback format in 1971; however, most comics fans recognize it from its reprint in 1974's Savage Sword of Conan #1. Gil Kane's exciting and bold attempt to marry the world of comic art and prose resulted in one of the earliest graphic novels. Included here are Pages 23, 81, 88, and 108. They were created with paste-up typeset text flanked by original art created in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board. The pages have an overall image area of 7" x 12.5" each. The illustration sizes vary within that. The toned 9" x 13.75" Bristol boards are 3-hole punched on the left side. There is some glue residue near the text paste-ups. In Very Good condition.
