DescriptionJack Kirby and Dick Ayers Strange Tales #92 "The Man Who Shrunk the World" Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1962). The mere mention of Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers in the same breath evokes images of mind-boggling drama and cosmic chills in the pages of the pre-hero Marvel yarns. Here is offered a classic pre-hero splash of an irresistible story hook. In this thriller, a man from the future travels back to the 1960s to conquer the world with a shrinking gas. However, when he tests the gas on himself -- he becomes too small to release the antidote, and shrinks to nothingness. D'oohhh! He sounds like a time-traveling candidate for a Darwin Award to us. The allure of this splash is irresistible and art from this time period is highly sought-after by aficionados of the Marvel monster/fantasy genre. This pencil and ink on Bristol art measures 12" x 18". Aside from closely trimmed margins, this Silver Age show-stopper is in Excellent condition. Dick Ayers signed the art on the back of the page.
