    Description

    Russ Heath Fantastic Four Portrait: The Thing and Alicia Masters Sketch Original Art (c. 1960s). Heath's style is usually associated with DC Comics' combat and high-adventure titles (such as Sea Devils), but the artist's roots run deep with Marvel, too -- including his post-WWII entry into the comics business. In this expressive, spontaneous piece, Heath offers a unique view of two key players from The Fantastic Four... The Thing and his girlfriend Alicia Masters. Ink and un-erased graphite on bond paper. Image area, 8.5" x 11". Moderate toning and a scattering of push-pin punctures (upper middle). Signed at lower edge. Very Good condition. From the Personal Collection of Russ Heath.
