    Description

    Steve Ditko Tales of Suspense #41 Story Page 2 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). Even as their "Marvel Age of Comics" work gathered momentum in 1963, Ditko and writer Stan Lee continued to crank out short tales of irony as backup material. This one is titled "The End of the Universe" and is a far-cry from the lead characters of Iron Man and Dr. Strange. For many kids of the period, these small but intellectually ambitious stories provided an introduction to Existentialism as a quest for some vague Meaning of Life Its Ownself. Here, a self-pitying pilot volunteers for a treacherous flight into deep space. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". Slight toning. In Excellent condition.
