    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers Strange Tales #101 Story Page 1 Human Torch Original Art (Marvel, 1962). This is not only the Torch's first solo story outside of the pages of The Fantastic Four, but he is also the first character to spin-off into his own series in Marvel's new superhero universe. Johnny joins the ranks of Marvel's only other solo heroes at the time... the Hulk, Thor, and Ant-Man. Blazing hot pages like this, from the early days of the Marvel Universe, are few and far-between! Rendered twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 19". The "Human Torch" logo is a modern day replacement affixed to the board (with a bit of glue residue near it). There are staple holes in the top and right margins. There is a crease in the top left corner, and a half-inch tear on the bottom edge. There are faint production stains in the margins. In Very Good condition.
