    Ron Wilson and John Romita Sr. Avengers #118 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1973). Looking for the ultimate teaming of classic Marvel characters on a cover? You may as well stop here, because this one will be hard to top! The Avengers join forces with the Defenders to battle those dreaded foes Loki and Dormammu, in an incredible image that brings Thor, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, Black Panther, Dr. Strange, Valkyrie, the Hulk, and Sub-Mariner together for one power-packed picture, featuring our mighty heroes literally exploding off the page! This is about as Marvel as it gets, True Believers! Jazzy John Romita Sr. pulls out all the stops on this cover, drawn in ink on vellum which has been affixed to a Marvel-style Bristol board (please note that this was done in 1973 by the artist; the artboard is completely original as used in printing the comic, not a later replacement). All the logo and type elements are original production pieces glued on top, for an approximate overall image area of 10" x 14.75". The vellum was professionally conserved recently to remove glue staining and in the process, the signature "Wilson & Romita" in the bottom left (which did not appear on the printed cover), faded considerably to the point that it is now barely legible, since it was not done with India ink. The board has been closely trimmed, with top and bottom edges cut right to the art, but the image itself remains in Excellent condition.
