    Description

    Brian H. Moore (attributed) X-Men "The Shattering Secret of Frankenstein" Title Page Original Art (Marvel, c. 1974). Production notes indicate that this offbeat title page may have been slated for X-Men #88 which reprinted the Frankenstein story from issue #40 (January 1968), but we're not 100% sure. There's no CCA stamp on the back of the page -- so it could be unpublished. (There's a copyright stamp with the date of 1984 on the back of the page). Although the credit box indicates the story was originally drawn by Don Heck and George Tuska, other production notes indicate this splash (with its different title) might be drawn by an artist named Brian H. Moore. The "MWM" penciled at the top may stand for the British series "Mighty World of Marvel." In any case, in the original story "The Mark of the Monster," the X-Men battle the Frankenstein monster -- who is revealed to be an android. This mysterious splash page, titled "The Shattering Secret of Frankenstein," has an image area of 10" x 15", and the art is in Very Good condition.
