    Olivier Coipel and Mark Morales Thor #1 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 2007). Let the Asgardian banners wave and the Odin-trumpets blare -- as we mere mortals behold a hair-raising look at the storm-bringing power of Mjolnir -- Thor's enchanted and all-powerful hammer. Iconic scenes of such graphic perfection almost defy description. Suffice it to say, only fan-fave talents such as penciler Olivier Coipel and inker supreme Mark Morales could create a cover of such intensity and majesty -- and as a result of their peerless artistry, the Marvel Age of Heroes continues to grip the hearts and minds of the comic book reading public. Our consignor notes, "When Marvel surprised the comics world by killing Thor by way of Ragnarok back at the end of 2004, it was an even greater surprise that he would remain dead for over two and a half years! Marvel tabbed star writer and now head of all-things-Marvel-television J. Michael Straczynski to reintroduce Thor to the Marvel universe in the summer of 2007. They also gave the art duty to rising star French artist Olivier Coipel. What the artist gave Marvel would become a modern masterpiece. Not only was Coipel's Thor loudly trumpeted as the best design the character had seen since the days of Walt Simonson, but the rebirth also came with a costume change to one of Marvel's original looks. The new costume was such a hit that it was the version of the character depicted on the big screen when Thor made his global hit-making debut in one of the linchpins in the Marvel Films library. The two pages of Coipel Thor art in our sale represent two of the most significant pieces of modern Thor art in the past 20 years -- the first cover and story appearance of Thor's new costume as well as his first re-appearance in the Marvel Universe after a nearly three year hiatus." This sublime cover sensation has an image area of 10.5" x 16", and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 13" x 18.5". This must-have Modern Marvel is in Excellent condition.
