    Gene Colan and Mike Esposito Marvel Super-Heroes #18 Guardians of the Galaxy Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1969). The first page of the first appearance of the Guardians of the Galaxy, who have a new movie out soon, by the way! From the synopsis written on the back of this page: "A man [Charlie-27] 10 centuries old leads a battle to free Earth!" This origin story is from the pencil of Colan and the inks of Esposito (as Mickey Demeo). Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 14", and signed by Colan in the top margin. The page is tanned, and there is some staining, spots, and some tape on the top right corner. Overall in Good condition.
