    Description

    Jack Kirby and Paul Reinman X-Men #4 Splash Page Original Art (Marvel, 1964). The only page from this issue ever to come on the market so far. Kirby only did full pencils (as opposed to breakdowns) for the first ten issues of this title, so there are very few fully-penciled splashes to go around. And having the whole team in the danger room is an ideal motif. A very cool bonus appears on the back of the page: handwritten prototype names (by Kirby we presume) for the Scarlet Witch, who made her first appearance later in the issue (Witch Woman, Jinx, the Sorceress, and quite a few others)! The piece has an image area of 12.5" by 19". It's ink over graphite on Bristol board. There are several horizontal creases through the whole piece, as the art had been rolled at one point. Minor water stain on the top left corner and stains on the bottom margin and by Beast's right hand and leg, as well as on the left edge. Spot stains by the title. Corner wear. Pieces of tape on the back. Light toning. Good condition. Includes a copy of the comic in Poor condition.
