    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers - Original Art for Avengers #16, page 6 (Marvel, 1964). This page is from the classic issue of Avengers that featured the new team lineup. As a matter of fact, this particular page has Giant-Man, Wasp, and Iron Man discussing the idea of disbanding which leads to that change. Jack Kirby provided the layouts for this page and Dick Ayers did the finished art. Ayers was a prolific artist for Marvel during that company's early days. His ability to quickly produce art for several titles at once is amazing due to their clean and polished, yet detailed nature. This page measures 13.5" x 20.75". The first panel had some word balloons that were cut away and then back filled with a piece of cardstock.The Wasp figure in the fourth panel is a stat and the Giant-Man figure in the same panel was cut out and moved due to a minor change in the composition. Despite the moderate use of white-out and staining, this is a nice piece with historic significance.
