    Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta Thor #157 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). "Behind Him... Ragnarok!" The title, which plays on the Norse mythology story of Ragnarok, is timely in that the title for the next Thor movie, due out in fall of 2017 is Thor: Ragnarok. This is a true Marvel Silver Age treasure, as royally produced by Jack "The King" Kirby and Vince "The Prince" Colletta. In fact, this is one of the finest examples of Colletta inks we have ever seen! Bold, thick lines that match Kirby's power-packed pencils, more in the style of Mike Royer's later work on Kirby's Fourth World line at DC. Stuck in Mangog's crushing grasp, this cover is one of the most dramatic Marvel covers of the era. Produced in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Curtiss Way Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". It is signed by Stan "The Man" Lee in the bottom margin. The logo and corner box were printed on Bristol board, then pasted on to this page, and the original art was continued up into it. The title caption in the lower area is paste-up as well. All are original paste-ups except the issue number, which is a more recent replacement. There was a very minor amount of light stain removal and lighting around the bottom of the corner box. The cover is top and bottom two-hole production punched, and has a bit of handling wear and production oil in the margins. Overall, in Very Good condition.
