    Alex Toth, Jack Kirby, and Vince Colletta - X-Men #12, page 9 Original Art (Marvel, 1965). Two titans of comic art teamed to create this pulse-pounding page from a key issue of theX-Men. Issue #12 featured the origins of both Professor X and his evil stepbrother, Cain Marko, aka the Juggernaut. The tension on this page was palpable as the mysterious, revenge-crazed Juggernaut was about to reveal himself to the teen-agers for the first time. The unstoppable powerhouse waded through Professor X's defenses effortlessly -- it was practically a stroll in the park for him! Alex Toth penciled the page over Jack Kirby layouts, with Vince Colletta slinging the inks. Some blue underpenciling is evident and story plot notes can still be read in the margins. The art measures 12.5" x 18.5". Three of the page's margins have been trimmed closely to the borders of the image area; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. Mighty Marvel action such as this seared the saga of "The Origin of Professor X" into the hearts and minds of every Silver Age fan wise enough to spent twelve cents on that issue. Here's your chance to acquire a treasured piece of Marvel lore, recapture a piece of your childhood, and own a cool piece of art-- Excelsior!
