    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers Avengers #1 Story Page 4 Hulk and Loki Original Art (Marvel, 1963). Simply one of the biggest and most important comic books in the entire Marvel Universe! And this is a key page as it sets in motion the events that will lead to "The Coming of the Avengers!" The Marvel Universe was only two years old at this point, and the architect/writer Stan Lee was busy weaving the various books together with the occasional cross-over appearance and by having villains from one book fight heroes from another. On this very page, Loki (Thor's brother) tricks the Hulk into destroying a train, resulting in Rick Jones attempting to contact the Fantastic Four.
    The chain of events would bring together Marvel's answer to DC's Justice League of America. But whereas the JLA all mostly got along at this point, the Avengers title was full of dissimilar personalities who would occasionally bicker as much as battle! Over the years, anyone who was anyone in the Marvel U has shown up in this title (if not been a member). The title has also been an integral part of the Marvel movie Universe.
    This key page of Marvel history was rendered in pencil at twice-up scale by the co-creator of most of the Marvel U, Mr. Jack Kirby, and inked by Dick Ayers. The image area of the Bristol board measures 12.75" x 18.5". Signed by Jack Kirby below the image area on the lower right margin. Lightly toned and in Excellent condition.
