Dick Ayers and Carl Burgos Human Torch #36 Story Page 5 Original Art (Marvel/Atlas, 1954). From the issue's untitled second story. In 1954, Godzilla had released in Japan, but it wouldn't be until 1956 that the Americanized version would show here in the US. Nevertheless, this dinosaur is looking very "King of the Monsters"-ish on this fantastic page with the original Golden Age Human Torch and young Toro the Flaming Boy. Dick Ayers penciled and inked the page; however, Carl Burgos added art paste-ups and corrections to almost every image of the Torches when they were on fire. So the image of Toro in Panel 4, and both of them in Panel 5 are original art corrections. There was a correction over the elder Torch in Panel 4, however it is missing, leaving a bit of glue residue stain and that great Dick Ayers original art. The twice-up scale illustration board has an image area of 12" x 18", and is toned. There is some glue residue in Panels 4 and 5. Overall, in Very Good condition. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
