    Description

    Steve Ditko Tales to Astonish #13 "My Friend Is... Not Quite Human" Title Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1960). This dramatic opener is one of the most striking Steve Ditko pre-hero title pages we've seen yet. Here is early Silver Age fantasy at its finest. The GCD-written plot synopsis for this chiller reads, "A misogynist wood-carver falls in love with his sculpture and has himself transformed into wood, but his refusal to pay a gypsy mystic leads to her making the wooden figure human out of spite." This Marvel "monster-piece" by "Sturdy Steve" has an image area of 12.5" x 18.5", and aside from overall paper aging, it's in Very Good condition.
