    Description

    Jack Kirby and Wally Wood - Original Cover Art for Journey into Mystery #122 (Marvel, 1965). There's only one word that can sum up this pulse-pounding Silver Age gem, and that's "WOW!" Two of the masters of comic art team-up to provide this stunning portrait of All-Father Odin, Lord of Asgard, as he sits astride his regal throne. In pristine condition, the title and logos are stats, but the rest, including the text under the logo box, is purely original. With an image area of approximately 13.25" x 20.25", this is a true masterpiece, rendered by two of comic's greatest talents. Prime examples of Silver Age Marvel covers are becoming scarcer and scarcer, as they're absorbed into private collections. The opportunity to own this sweet piece may never come again.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
