    Description

    Jack Kirby Silver Surfer and Doctor Doom Large Pencil Sketch Original Art (1972). The King does it again with this pulse-pounding page of prime Kirby excitement, featuring everyone's favorite cosmic wanderer, the Silver Surfer, here paired with the Silver Age's most fearsome villain, Doctor Doom! It's a fan-boy's dream come true!

    This is easily one of the largest and most impressive pencil drawings by Kirby we've ever seen, and the subject-two of the most popular, important, and endearing Marvel Silver Age characters powerfully rendered by their creator-couldn't be more desirable.

    This piece was previously sold in the 9/30/1992 Sotheby's auction, was in the collection of singer Graham Nash, and was then auctioned again by Sotheby's on 6/5/1998. We know of one enterprising fan who, viewing this piece as the quintessential Kirby scene, commissioned Joe Sinnott to ink a copy of the art!

    The art is edge-to-edge on a piece of illustration board measuring approximately 14" x 17", is signed by the artist in the lower center, and is matted and framed to an overall size of 27" x 31". It's in Excellent condition. This is easily one of the largest and most impressive pencil drawings by Kirby we've ever seen, and the subject -- two of the most popular, important, and endearing Marvel Silver Age characters powerfully rendered by their creator -- couldn't be more desirable. Put a Kirby on your wall, true believer!
