    Description

    Mike Ploog and Alex Niño Marvel Premiere #38 Story Page 13 Weirdworld Original Art (Marvel, 1977). Ploog's sturdy breakdowns (basic art) provide a solid springboard for Niño's detailed renderings in finished pencilling and elaborate inking. The sword-and-sorcery saga is reminiscent of Wally Wood's World of the Wizard King saga of the 1960s, notably in the elfin hero and a voluptuous sprite of a leading lady. Ploog sneaks in a visual reference to his mentor, Will Eisner, in the characters of a big-nosed villain and his pet buzzard -- a nod to Eisner's recurring foils in The Spirit, Mr. Carrion and Julia the Vulture. Page is mis-labeled as for issue #33; appeared in #38. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Marginal adhesive residue. Excellent condition.
