    Jack Kirby and Frank Giacoia - The Invaders #4 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1976). "U-Man Must be Stopped", and the "big three" of Marvel Comics' Golden Age -- Captain America, the Human Torch, and the Sub-Mariner -- are just the heroes to do it! Jack "King" Kirby brings his unparalleled talent for penciling powerhouse action to this jam-packed World War II thriller, and Frank Giacoia finished the art with his silky-smooth inks. John Romita Sr. might have had a hand in this scene as well, as the Sub-Mariner's head and right arm have a hint of blue under-penciling showing, and Namor's grimace shows Jazzy Johnny's influence. Frank Giacoia inscribed and signed the piece in marker in the upper border, but his writing has faded and can be scarcely seen. His inscription reads, "To Steve, Best Wishes Frank Giacoia." In addition to that signature, Captain America's co-creator, Joe Simon, has signed the art on the back of the page. The image area of the cover measures approximately 11.25" x 16". The title logo is a recent replacement, and the ruled border lines on the left, right, and bottom borders were whited-out, and the original art extended to those three edges of the paper. The lower right corner is trimmed in at an angle ever so slightly; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
