    Frank Miller Ronin #1 Page 24 Original Art (DC, 1983). Frank Miller's Ronin changed the direction of comics with its prestige mini-series format, combined with the fact that it was the first modern feature where DC allowed the creator to retain the rights to the character. Ronin has since been celebrated as among the most important and influential stories ever published. Miller is arguably the greatest superhero writer/artist to work during this period, and Ronin helped launch a much-needed comics revolution -- many feel that there would be no Sandman, Watchmen, or Dark Knight, without this visionary work leading the way. Ronin has inspired countless creators, among them Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame. This atmospheric page is only the second Ronin page that Heritage has offered at auction, and artwork from the famed epic is much scarcer than anything else from the period. According to collecting lore, only pages from the first issue have left Miller's possession (with only 47 pages available to the market). This fantastic piece has been locked away in a single collection since being purchased upon the series' original publication, and is the definition of "fresh to market." And unlike many pages from Miller's other eighties series, the original art and writing here are pure Frank Miller, making this one of the most important pieces of modern original comic book art Heritage has ever had the pleasure to offer. This masterwork from "Ronin: Book One" has an image area of 10" x 15". The second panel two has two original art correction paste-ons; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
