    Description

    Jim Starlin Avengers #135 Cover Ultron Original Art (Marvel, 1975). The origin of the Vision is continued, co-starring the villainous Ultron! It is well-known that John Romita Sr. provided the floating heads of Thor, Mantis, and Iron Man on the published cover, but a side-by-side comparison will show some other changes from Starlin's finished cover art to the published piece. Most notable is the disappearance of the Golden Age Human Torch on the far left. Given that the cover blurb stated "How the Human Torch became... The Vision," it shouldn't have been a surprise to readers that he's in the issue. This piece of original art by Starlin was rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". Matted to 15" x 20.25". Corner creasing on the board outside the image area. There's a 1.5" tear at left, sealed with tape on the back, that barely enters the image area above the Torch's head. There are whiteout art corrections in several places. In Very Good condition.
