    Jack Kirby Captain America #193 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1976). Kirby's highly detailed pencils for the iconic "Madbomb" cover are truly astounding! John Romita Sr. inked the published cover, but here you can see the power and majesty of the pure Kirby graphite work. The Falcon is even wearing the version of this costume most of his fans rank as his best... the red and white one with wings which John Romita Sr. originally designed himself! The full Bristol board shows that Romita added some pencil work outside of the main image area so they could show just a bit more of the art on the published cover. This issue marked Jack Kirby's return to Marvel Comics after working exclusively for DC Comics for five years. As the cover blurb said... "King Kirby is back -- and greater than ever!" 'Nuff Said! A copy of Cap #193 DOES NOT accompany this lot, but we're showing online a copy from a previous comics auction for reference. Pure graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.5" x 10", and matted to 14.25" x 14.5". Signed by Kirby in the lower image area. In Excellent condition.
