    Description

    Alan Kupperberg Captain America #271 Unpublished Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1982). "The Mystery of Mr. X" just keeps getting deeper. Just a few weeks ago, we sold an un-inked splash/title page for the story that is almost identical to this one, which is almost identical to the actual published piece! This one may have been Kupperberg's first attempt, as Bernie's body position is different and there is no TV Guide in the shot at all. So this makes at least three fully penciled versions of this page (counting the published one) that Kupperberg much have produced. Pure graphite on Marvel Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The page is toned, otherwise in Excellent condition.
