    Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko - Fantastic Four #13, page 13 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). The Watcher tells Ben Grimm and the Red Ghost about his people and their history of observation. "But now, I have broken the silence of centuries in order to save your people from savagery!" Boy -- communism was such a bad idea it required extraterrestrial intervention! This issue marked the historic debut of the Watcher, poking his bald head into our affairs for the very first time. Not too many Silver Age comics had textured inks of Steve Ditko layered over the powerhouse pencils of Jack Kirby, but this is one of 'em, and the results are as spellbinding as always -- check out the cool aliens and the outstanding portrait of the Thing in panel five. The image area measures 12.5" x 18.5" and the art is in Excellent condition, with only some overall edge wear, and a light crease in the lower right corner. Re-live the glory days of the Silver Age with this celebrated Kirby/Ditko collaboration!
