    Description

    Jack Kirby and Alfredo Alcala (attributed) Thor Animation Cartoon Concept Illustration Original Art (Ruby-Spears, c. 1980s). Don Blake, transforming into... the Mighty Thor... as drawn by Jack "The King" Kirby! During his six years with Ruby-Spears, Jack Kirby would unload a pile of ideas on them for new series and features every week. Some were licensed properties that he would pitch, and if there was interest, then Ruby-Spears would seek out the licensing. So it is only natural that Jack would go back to one of his fondest creations... The Mighty Thor! Thor had already had a cartoon in the 1960s, and Kirby had done great work with a revamped Fantastic Four cartoon in 1978. We would have loved to have seen this one also! Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 13". Kirby's name is penciled on the back, possibly by Kirby's hand. Slight tanning, with a bit of whiteout art correction, otherwise in Excellent condition.
