    Frank Miller Ronin #1 Story Page 8 Original Art (DC, 1983). A key scene in this story as the demon Agat has just killed Lord Ozaki in Japan's ancient past, which puts in motion events that will lead to a climactic battle in a future post-apocalyptic New York. Only the fifth page from Frank Miller's Ronin that Heritage Auctions has ever offered for sale! 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 ever left Miller's possession (so only a maximum of 48 pages may be available to the market). This game-changer book 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 fans feel that there would be no Sandman, Watchmen, or Dark Knight Returns, 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. Produced in ink over graphite on DC Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The panels are all original art, however some have been produced on a separate piece of Bristol board and pasted onto this page, covering the original graphite and ink art below. The page is tanned, with some production tape in the margins, otherwise in Excellent condition.
