Description

    Frank Miller Ronin #1 Story Page 18 Original Art (DC, 1983). Visitors get a rare glimpse of the security system at the Aquarius compound on this page from the ground-breaking 12-issue series.
    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 is only one of a handful of pages from this series we have ever offered, owing to the comic industry lore that only pages from this first issue have ever left Miller's possession. That means there are potentially only 48 pages of the 296 pages from this six-issue series "out in the wild". And unlike many pages from Miller's other 80s works, the original art and writing here are pure Frank Miller, making this a rare treat indeed.
    Crafted in ink over graphite on oversized Bristol board with an image area of 11.25" x 17.75". There is production tape in the margins, and some slight handling wear. Overall the page is in Excellent condition.
