    John Byrne The Fantastic Four #247 Doctor Doom Page 7 Original Art (Marvel, 1982). This stunner is the nicest page from John Byrne's legendary FF run we've ever offered, featuring a truly spectacular half-splash of number-one nemesis Dr. Doom, presiding majestically over Latveria and expressing his diabolical views on "benevolent" rule to the Thing! As a huge fan favorite and one of the most popular comic artists of all time, Byrne commenced writing and art duties on "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine" immediately following his stint on the Uncanny X-Men, and most collectors view these twin high-spots as the most desirable artwork from his all-star career. Within Byrne's FF stint, issues #232-250 are generally considered the peak, and within that group there are a small handful of classic issues that are singled out as the absolute cream of the crop -- with the two-part Doom story from #246-247 right at the top. Pages from #247 in particular have been locked away in a collection for many years, never surfacing on the open market, and this page, hitting on many collecting highpoints, represents a very special opportunity -- vintage Byrne at his peak! This eighties Marvel masterpiece has an image area of 10" x 15". Aside from three clipped margin corners (well outside of the image area), the art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Byrne in the bottom panel.
