    Bill Everett - Original Splash Page Art for Strange Tales #149, page 1 (Marvel, 1966). The Evil Kaluu, freed from five-hundred years of exile in the nameless dimension, has returned to exact vengeance upon his former companion, the wise, venerated Ancient One. This splash page, from the story, "If Kaluu Should Triumph...," written by Denny O'Neil, was penciled and inked by one of the Golden Age Masters of comics art, Bill Everett. Set against a paranormal panorama, the Ancient One and Dr. Strange are seized by unseen forces, all courtesy of one of the industry's legendary artists. The art measures approximately 13.5" x 21.5", with a 12.5" x 19" image area, and includes the original title type, and hand-drawn credit art. There is some slight aging apparent, a slight stain along the top edge, and some minimal white-out usage, but overall, this work is in excellent condition.
