    Bill Sienkiewicz and Joseph Rubinstein - The Hulk #13 Splash Page 38 Original Art (Marvel, 1979). Bill Sienkiewicz is a true innovator in the world of comics and illustration. His work has consistently pushed the boundaries, and inspired many of the greatest names working in the field today. He expanded the limits of what comics could be. Sienkiewicz cut his teeth on the Moon Knight yarns of the early 80s, and Moon Knight would ultimately be celebrated as Bill's signature character. During this key period of his career, Sienkiewicz emerged from out of the shadow of an obvious influence, Neal Adams. With a glimmer of the unconventional graphic style which would win him a cult status in the industry, Bill Sienkiewicz penciled, and Joseph Rubinstein inked, this dynamic full page view of the Fist of Khonshu in the splash page from the magazine, The Hulk. Issue #13 featured the story, "The Big Blackmail," written by Doug Moench. This back-up thriller from the Hulk was a true milestone as it was the very first time that Bill Sienkiewicz illustrated Moon Knight; please note, this spectacular splash is a piece of Marvel comics history, it's Bill's very first page detailing the grim avenger! The art has an image area of 10.5" x 15" with some slight smudging along the extreme edges, outside the image area, otherwise it's in Excellent condition. The page was signed by both Sienkiewicz and Rubinstein at the lower right. Bill Sienkiewicz has had a major influence on the style of comic illustration from 1980 onwards. His use of unconventional media has been an influence on many of the artists who followed him. Here's your chance to own some of his early work and share in the Sienkiewicz experience!
