    Description

    John Romita Sr. - MGM's Marvelous Wizard of Oz #1 Inside Front Cover Preliminary Original Art (Marvel/DC, 1975). Who could ever forget this spooky scene from the 1939 MGM musical, "The Wizard of Oz," where a desperate Dorothy (and Toto too) is caught in the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys? John Romita has captured the essence of the shivery scene with his detailed pencil preliminary drawing. This drawing has an image area of approximately 9" x 12.5" and was drawn on vellum. It has since been mounted on a piece of carefully color-matched support paper; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
