    John Romita Sr. - Aurora Comic Scenes Captain America Cover and Complete 5-page Story Original Art (Aurora Plastics, Inc., 1973). The Red Skull has a doomsday device, and it's up to Cap to stop him from using it! The original artwork for the comic booklet that accompanied Kit no. 192 is by the legendary "Jazzy" John Romita Sr., and it's a rare treat to see him cut loose on a character he rarely drew in the course of his day job. These pages are frenetic and loaded with the usual Romita finesse, made double-cool by the fact that he inked them himself. This lot consists of seven pieces: the original cover art (Cap's head is a pasted-up stat), the actual production cover (a stat of the cover art, plus logo, text, etc.), and the five pages of the story, one of which (page 4) was also for use as a backdrop to the model kit. The image area measures 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition, with some tape stains in the margins.
