    Jack Kirby and Wally Wood Journey Into Mystery #122 Odin, Thor, and Crusher Creel Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1965). "Truly Impressive" does not come close to describing the power that exudes from this titanic twice-up image of the All-Father, Odin, masterfully created, by two titanic talents themselves... Jack "The King" Kirby and "Wandering" Wally Wood! It's possibly the best cover image of Odin...ever. Considering their long and incredibly prolific careers, Kirby and Wood really only worked together a few times. There was; Challengers of the Unknown #4-8; Journey into Mystery #51 and 122; Fantastic Four #39; Sandman #6; and briefly on the late 1950s newspaper comic strip Sky Masters of the Space Force, plus covers for Avengers #20-22; Daredevil #5; X-Men #14; and Tales of Suspense #71. Most of their collaborative covers are not know to exist anymore, making this "Pop Art Productions" era cover even more rare and special. Twice-up Silver Age Kirby covers have become increasingly rare on the market, in general. Fans of TV's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil should note that the Absorbing Man on this cover is Crusher Creel, who has appeared on the former show and been referenced on the later. This cover is produced in ink over graphite, on Bristol board, with an image area of 13.25" x 20.25". The artwork has been trimmed to the edges. The logo, corner box, and issue number are all original stat paste-ups. The page is slightly tanned with a minor amount of whiteout art corrections made at the time of creation. There are a couple of very small discolorations on Creel's arm, and the backside has glue residue from a previous mounting. The overall condition is Very Good, the art has wonderful eye appeal, and will display very nicely.
