DescriptionRich Buckler (as Validar) Fantastic Four #196 Preliminary Cover Original Art (Marvel Comics, 1978). Buckler signed his Marvel work as Validar, here -- a cover-name during a period when he was under an exclusive contract at rival DC Comics. Too bad this excellent conceptual design did not make the cut -- the published version, by George Pérez and Pablo Marcos, uses the same theme, but in a split-panel configuration. Graphite on Bristol board. The image area measures 10" x 15". Light toning. Excellent condition.
