Description

    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers - Fantastic Four #11 Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). The Fantastic Four met their adoring Manhattan fans in "A Visit with the Fantastic Four." Big Apple Marvelites lined up outside a crowed drugstore to buy the latest issue of the World's Greatest Comic Magazine, even as the famous quartet walked among them. One of New York's Finest got into the act as he read a copy on his beat. "Hey Charlie look! I just got the latest copy and my letter's on the fan page," shouts an elated true believer. The reproduction is so super-sharp on the photostat of the fan page that you can actually read the letters -- and one of them was penned by G.B.Love, renowned publisher of the Rockets Blast Comic Collector! Scenes such as this helped create an illusion of reality for the Marvel superheroes. They lived in a real American city and interacted with real people and celebrities. Fans might even run into them if they found themselves in the concrete canyons of Manhattan. Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers teamed to make the whole scene exciting. Reed, Sue, Johnny, and Ben all cameo at the upper right. The image area of the splash is 12.5" x 18.5", and the art is in Excellent condition. Be sure to put your bid in on this famous piece of Marvel lore!
