    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers - Fantastic Four #10, page 5 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). The House of Ideas revolutionized (some say saved) the entire comics industry in the sixties, thanks to the titanic talents of one of the most beloved teams ever to do superhero features -- Smilin' Stan Lee and Jack "King" Kirby. In this famed page, the pair of publishing powerhouses were confronted with an unannounced, drop-in visit by one of their most fearsome supervillains, the dreaded Dr. Doom, in "The Return of Dr. Doom." Yikes! One of the charms of the early Marvel tales was the way Stan and his batty bullpen reached out to the fans and readers, creating an sense of intimacy, while playing with the reality of the universe they had created for their characters. The first panel showcased Stan and Jack, surrounded by their famed co-creations Thor, Ant Man, and the Hulk. As the two struggled to create a new menace, Dr. Doom suddenly entered the room to hijack the meeting with a plot to trap the Fantastic Four! The image area of the page measures 12.5" x 18.5", and aside from a small tape residue stain at the lower right, outside of the image area, the art is in Excellent condition. Face Front, and put your bid in on this magnificent Marvel milestone!
