    Jim Steranko and John Tartaglione - X-Men #51 Splash Page 1 Original Art (Marvel, 1968). When one of the vanguard of the Silver Age artists unleashed his dynamic "Zap Art" style on the title splash page of one of the most popular comic titles of all time, the results were spectacular! Jim Steranko absorbed many of his influences from a life-long love, and sustained study of, the popular arts, to forge his own electrifying approach to visual storytelling. This scene recalls the power of Jack Kirby's superheroic figures, the graphic innovations of Will Eisner's Spirit title pages, and the surreal architecture of Richard Powers' science fiction paperback covers, yet it remains pure Steranko! His art revived fan interest in the then-stagnating X-Men title. Steranko drew only a little over thirty pages of art for the X-Men title, and "The Devil Had a Daughter" splash is one of the most impressive of that select group. In it, the X-Men are joined by Lorna Dane and Magneto for a complete group-portrait of the major Silver Age players in the title. The art has an image area of 10" x 15". There is a bit of slight paper aging apparent at the bottom of the page; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
