    John Romita Jr. Marvel Swimsuit Special #1 Pin-Up Illustration Tony Stark and Nick Fury Original Art (Marvel, 1992). In the early 1990s, Marvel tried to tap into the success of the Sports Illustrated "Swimsuit Issue" and produced magazine-style pin-up issues featuring many Marvel characters posing in swimwear. Countless Marvel artists contributed their visions to revealing a more "relaxed" side of the superheroes -- and that included fan-favorite artist John Romita Jr., taking the opportunity to provide a rare pencil and ink illustration of Tony Stark out of the Iron Man armor, and Nick Fury, who can't be anywhere without his sidearm. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 17". Production tape marks in the bottom margin, and residue staining on the top left corner. Signed by Romita Jr. in the lower right image area. In Excellent condition.
