As Marvel's art director, Romita was instructed to make the monster dissimilar to the famous Universal Pictures' version, which he accomplished magnificently. Includes a Roy Thomas notation at the bottom right, presumably addressed to Mike Ploog: "Mike, This is the version Stan wants to use... please call me to discuss." The art measures 10" x 15". Aside from some light soiling, a diagonal crease at the upper right, and a small tear at the bottom center (all outside of the image area), the art is in Very Good condition.
