RARE ZECK FINISHED COVER ARTWORK! This showpiece features tremendous dynamic X-Men imagery. PLUS, ORIGINAL COMIC ART IS WAY LARGER THAN A MERE COMIC! Great detail work, with a near photographic quality to the faces of the iconic characters, and the tightness of the paint work is impressive! THIS COVER ART IS LUSH, WITH TEXTURE AND DETAIL WORK SEEN ONLY ON THE ORIGINAL THAT GIVES IT AN ALMOST 3-D QUALITY. The originals to the front covers of popular Marvel Comics and Graphic Novels are notoriously tough to get, and once one sells, it can be out of the market for decades. Any comic-art fan will want to see our other current offerings, featuring dozens of pieces, including vintage cover production art. THIS ARTWORK IS BRILLIANT AND CLEAN AND WELL PRESERVED, PLEASE SEE THE INCLUDED PICTURES. This original piece of comic illustration art would be a great addition to the collection of any fan of the unique original artwork to vintage comics. This is the ORIGINAL ART, which is far larger than a comic book or a magazine. A co nversation piece of the highest order, you’ll want to have this one framed and displayed prominently. The most iconic mutants from various eras of comics are featured. Cyclops, Beast, and team leader Charles Xavier have been around since the team’s debut in X-Men #1 back in 1963. Then the seventies saw the intro of Logan, sometimes known as Weapon X, others just call him “Patch”, but he’s best known as Wolverine, the must popular mutant, ever. In the early eighties, Rogue came along, and quickly gained a cult-following. Then at the start of the nineties, Gambit hit the scene, followed shortly thereafter by Bishop, and they both quickly gained a fan base. So this blockbuster artwork features arguably the hottest mutants from the silver, bronze, copper, and modern ages, giving it appeal to multiple generations of mutant fans! One photograph shows the art alongside a random comic for scale. The digital pictures make the piece appear dull and drab, when in reality it is bold and especially striking in person. This actual one-off item was created by MICHAEL ZECK AND PHIL ZIMELMAN in 1995 for MARVEL Comics to produce the awe-inspiring Ultimate X-men cover, and closeups of the facial portraits, straight from this piece, were also featured on the back cover of the published book. This gorgeous showpiece is the original, not mere “stats” or photocopies, — it is especially striking since the paint & inking was done to high standards, so it really emphasizes the high-impact images. This is one-of-a-kind material which would be a great acquisition for any fan of the popular Marvel superhero comics or X-Men books, graphic novels and magazines! Extra fresh, bright, and clean; It has obviously been very well-preserved so far. Boasting lots of great details and very realistic, not at all’cartoony’, this would be particularly impressive if it were framed and displayed, but it could also be stored for investment.
