    Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers - Fantastic Four #12, Splash Page 14 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). Jack Kirby's love for science and science fiction infused each of his yarns with mind-boggling concepts and machines, later dubbed "Kirbytech." The Fantastic Four often used their super-powers to tweak Reed Richards' inventions; the Thing served as a human hoist or nearly invulnerable test pilot, the Human Torch acted as a living welding torch, and Reed himself would stretch his fingers into nearly inaccessible places to wire together his gizmos. The Fantastic Four were at the forefront of America's technological advances in the sixties -- anything seemed possible! The Navy actually tested Transonic rocket sleds at China Lake,California. General "Thunderbolt" Ross, the Hulk's antagonist, co-starred in panel one. Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers set the pace for the early Marvel masterworks and this splash is a doozy. The image area of the page is 12.5" x 18.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
