    Description

    John Byrne Contemporary Pictorial Literature (CPL) #13 Unpublished Doctor Doom Illustration Original Art (CPL/Gang Publications, c. 1974). CPL was a fan/pro-zine published in the mid 1970s, produced by individuals who would go on to become some of the top talent in the industry... Bob Layton, Roger Stern, Tony Isabella, and many more. They also published some of John Byrne's earliest work, and not just art -- he had a recurring feature titled "Northern Lights" where he would provide an essay on a character, along with an impressive illustration. The last issue published was #12 and his article ended with "Next: Doctor Doom!" Sadly, issue #13 was never published; however, here we have the intended illustration of the stoic monarch of Latveria. Produced in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". It is signed with Byrne's early signature, and dated 1974. The board is lightly tanned, with minor corner wear. Otherwise in Excellent condition.
