    Description

    Marie Severin Chamber of Darkness #4 Preliminary Cover Rough Original Art (Marvel, 1970). Marie Severin was indispensable to the Marvel Bullpen in the 1960s and 1970s in a number of behind-the-scenes roles, including producing rough cover layouts to help speed the production process. This was a proposed cover for issue #4 of Chamber of Darkness, and it would have been a prophetic cover, because the story it illustrates is the Barry Smith try-out Conan the Barbarian style story! Another piece of Bronze Age Marvel history that shines a light on what has long been considered a backdoor key to the beginning of the Modern Age of comics. Produced in ink and wash on yellow-green paper with an image area of 7" x 10". In Excellent condition.
