DescriptionJack Kirby and Vince Colletta Love Romances #96 Story Page 3 Original Art (Marvel Comics, 1961). This oversized page must have been sitting on Kirby's drawing board around the time he was penciling Fantastic Four #1. The dominant figure, a lovesick office worker, seems a ringer for Susan "Invisible Girl" Storm. Not to mention that this issue of Love Romances hit the racks during the same month as the first Fantastic Four. The significance of the romance titles to the "Marvel Age" heroic comics cannot be overstated, and this page hammers home that point most emphatically. It also features some of Kirby's more inventive compositional techniques, including a panel border that morphs into the back of an easy chair (upper left) and a dramatic close-up of an ominous wedding ring (upper right). Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.75". Excellent condition.
