    John Romita Sr. - The Falcon New Costume Design Original Art (c. 1971). The original design piece for the Falcon's new duds is enough to make any Marvel fan face front. It is an undisputable bit of Mighty Marvel History! This original art design is almost exact as to how the costume appeared on Page 15 of issue #144. Created in mixed media on paper taped to matting board, there is some discolored production tape in places with whiteout art corrections over the top. Of note, the detailed graphite inset of the falconer's glove, with retractable swingline claw. The matted image area measures 9.25" x 13". The paper is wrinkled, with a minor stain on the right, and the noted discolored tape. "Johnny Romita" is handwritten on the back of the board. At first we couldn't decide whether this represented the artist's signature, but luckily we had the opportunity to consult Mr. Romita himself, who told us "the autograph probably is mine but not sure I ever signed 'Johnny' again." In Very Good condition.
