    Steve Ditko and Paul Reinman - Tales of Suspense #49, page 16 Original Art (Marvel, 1964). Fans often forget that it was Steve Ditko who redesigned Iron Man's bulky armor into the more streamlined red and gold version. Iron Man's armor remains one of Steve's best costume designs. The Angel has bested Iron Man in aerial combat, but now the X-Man cannot bear to allow the armored Avenger to plummet to his death and so he makes a power dive to rescue him. The overall paper size measures 13.5" x 20.25, while the image area is 12.5" x 18.5". There are a few minor white-out art touch-ups; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. This page is another triumph for Sturdy Steve Ditko and the House of Ideas and features both Iron Man and the Angel!
