Description

    Frank Miller and Klaus Janson The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #15 Doctor Octopus vs. the Punisher page #15 Original Art (Marvel, 1981). It's always a special event when a first-rate Frank Miller page is offered for auction -- and especially so when the page hails from one of Miller's most beloved periods -- the years when Marveldom assembled first thrilled to Miller's ground-breaking storytelling in Daredevil at the close of the Bronze Age. This page with Doctor Octopus and the Punisher features all-out action, as Doc Ock toys with Punisher, even as he makes a threatening phone call. Miller's rendition of Punisher, here, and subsequently in the pages of Daredevil, was a key factor in catapulting the character from his back-up status into a full-blown, fan-favorite and major player in the Marvel Universe. Miller's Marvel pages were both innovative and fast-moving -- they served as a creative arena where he developed new storytelling techniques. This page has an image area of 10" x 15", and aside from a clipped upper right corner (outside the image area), and some yellowed Zipatone in panel four, the art is in Excellent condition.
