    Jack Kirby Esquire September 1966 Illustration Spider-Man and Other Marvel Heroes Original Art (Esquire, 1966). For comics to be discussed in a "respectable" magazine like Esquire was a very big deal in the mid-1960s! This two-page illustration opened an article discussing modern comics that was several pages long. Featured here are: Thor, Sub-Mariner, the Invisible Girl, Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Human Torch, the Thing, and Spider-Man!
    The piece was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 18.5" x 9.25". There are some production stains on the piece, and a bit of glue residue on the right edge. The Spider-Man figure is different from the published image and there is whiteout art correction on him. It appears an art correction paste-up may have been used at some stage in production to change the figure. There is also art correction whiteout on the Hulk's face. Signed by Kirby in the lower right and again in the upper image area. In Very Good condition.
