Description

    Jim Starlin - Captain Marvel #36, Hand Colored Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1974). Take a good look at this stellar, hand-painted splash -- the only Captain Marvel series page one splash penciled, inked, and painted by Jim Starlin -- as the Watcher regards an image of Captain Mar-vell on his hand-held viewer. This scintillating first page framed this issue's story, "The Coming of Captain Marvel!," which reprinted the first appearance of Captain Marvel, from Marvel Superheroes #12. Writer Steve Englehart titled this short sequence "Watching and Waiting...," and he poked fun at artist Al Milgrom for missing his deadline, forcing Marvel to have to pull this story out of the files. The image area measures 10" x 15" and aside from some glue and tape stains, mostly outside of the image area, the art is in Very Good condition.
