RECREATION; art by Jack Kirby (see description for more information) and signed by Kirby; COA included; image size 12.5" x 16.75"
"Iron Man!"
In 1993-1994, Sotheby's Auction House struck a unique partnership with Marvel and the Kirby family to procure and sell a group of recreations of some of the most iconic Silver Age Marvel comic book covers. The proceeds of these sales were intended to benefit the Kirby family and estate. Three pencil-only recreations by Jack Kirby were sold at auction in June of 1994: Amazing Fantasy #15, Amazing Spider-Man #1, and Tales of Suspense #39. We are thrilled to offer the absolutely stunning, large-sized recreation of TOS #39, featuring the first appearance of Iron Man. Since the whereabouts of the original cover is unknown, this may be the closest a collector will ever get to owning this iconic illustration. It's worth noting that Jack Kirby did several cover recreations outside of the Sotheby's commissioned pieces but refused to produce more than one copy of any cover, making this the only Kirby attributed cover recreation of TOS #39 in existence! Sadly, Jack died before the auction took place.

This piece is not free from controversy, as some bloggers and comic historians have speculated that Jack had assistants help him with his work later in life. If he had assistance with this piece is unknown. Regardless, this is an accurate recreation of one of the most significant images of the Silver Age of Marvel Comics. It comes with the original certificate of authenticity from Sotheby's, signed posthumously by Roz Kirby on Jack's behalf.

Iron Man was one of the major superheroes to debut during Marvel's Silver Age, the Armored Avenger has been a key character throughout the entire Marvel Universe since his debut and has played a central role in the incredibly successful MCU. Tales of Suspense #39 remains one of the most iconic Marvel covers of all time, inspiring numerous homages over the years.

All original art sales are final.

Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Iron Man (Tony Stark) (3/63)
Realizing the growing Marvel audience was composed primarily of hip, and largely left-leaning high-school students and collegians, Stan Lee challenged himself to create a hero who would be the embodiment of everything the counterculture was railing against, and still elicit sympathy from readers. Thus, Tony Stark was born as an older, hard-drinking, playboy millionaire. Iron Man quickly became a cult favorite whose popularity has only grown over the years.

The origin story of Iron Man is one deeply rooted in the Vietnam War era. Tony Stark, a weapons designer, is brought in to help the U.S. government in their efforts to combat the Vietcong, whose guerilla tactics make the American military approach of bigger and badder seem obsolete in the steamy jungles of Southeast Asia. While conducting a test, Stark is mortally wounded by a booby trap and taken captive. While imprisoned, Stark constructs a suit of armor that contains an array of gadgets and firepower that also slows the approach of a piece of shrapnel inching inexorably towards his heart. Voila, Iron Man is born ready to do battle with the forces of Communism and other evils around the globe.

Kirby, Ditko art; 2nd Iron Man; 1st Gold Armor
As with the Hulk, the first appearance of Iron Man proved a hit with readers but a pain for the production department, as the characters' initial grey armor design proved tough to pick out in the dizzying interior art squeezed into his short but memorable debut. Back to the drawing board, and the simple solution of recoloring his armor into a dazzling expanse of shimmering gold. The look still wasn't complete, and fans of the modern Iron Man will still be puzzled by his utilitarian design, but it was a step closer to perfection, and boy did it pop on the cover. Note, also, that Marvel still wasn't above hedging its bets, laying out this cover to somewhat resemble the monster mash imagery that were its bread and butter before the shift to hero books, especially the cavedude on the right, who looks like he could have wandered in from one of the pre-hero horror covers by accident.

classic Kirby cover; Iron Man/Captain America double feature begins; 1st app. Jarvis
Not only does the Iron Man/Cap double feature start in this issue, it is also the 1st solo Cap adventure since the 1950s. Nobody does it better than Kirby and Lee and this issue is no exception. Drawn in the pulse pounding Marvel way, the story is set in the Avengers' Mansion, Cap is chillaxing and a gang breaks in and tries to rob the mansion and take on the Star Spangled Avenger. Needless to say, Captain America throws his mighty shield! Jarvis, the Avengers' butler makes his debut in this issue as well!

Kirby cvr/art; Ditko art; 1st Antman in costume (origin, 2nd app.)
Having established their new character Ant-Man in Tales to Astonish #27, incorporating the 1950s sci-fi/monster template as inspiration, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby overhauled their new concept to match Marvel's rapid takeover of the hero market. With a new origin and costume, it took some time for the results to really click with readers. In hindsight, this second appearance serves as a landmark for the nascent Marvel era, employing the mood, and style of their post-code monster titles to give superhero comics a fresh and compelling new look. Among the silent successes of Marvel Silver Age keys, this issue is surprisingly rare and in great demand as a result. Prices are on the rise, and copies of Tales to Astonish are becoming increasing more difficult to find. The market price of Ant-Man's second appearance has skyrocketed since the character was featured on the big screen in his own origin tale, as well as other MCU releases, and with more Ant-Man appearances making their way to theaters soon, the sky's the limit.
