    Jay Disbrow - Original Art for The Flames of Gyro, Complete 32-page Story (Fantagraphics, 1979). This wonderful set of pages also includes the inside front cover art that featured "...the cast of The Flames of Gyro." Jay Disbrow's Golden Age roots are unmistakable in this epic space opera which he also wrote. However, this mature work manages to possess that nostalgic appeal while displaying an obviously refined style that is rendered beautifully with washes. Each page is worthy of individual display. Together, they represent an absolute coup for some lucky bidder. This story was obviously a labor of love for Disbrow. Each panel is a throughout work of art with detailed images and backgrounds that are overflowing with space ships, breath taking landscapes, and monstrous creatures that never look cluttered. These pages are in exceptional condition with virtually no use of white-out or staining. Only two panels in the entire story have edited text boxes, which were all hand rendered on the pages. The pages are a huge 16" x 22" in size with an image area of 14" x 20".
