Jack Kirby pencils/Joe Sinnott inks; page 62; 1978; image size 10" x 15"The Surfer is in four out of five panels on this page, from Stan Lee and Kirby's Silver Surfer graphic novel, considered to be the first stand-alone superhero graphic novel. Masterfully depicted by Jack "The King" Kirby and one of his finest inkers in Joe Sinnott. From the presence of the cosmic Ardina, to the classic, dramatic Surfer close-up, there is not much more one could want. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition. The last panel is a stat but the original art is underneath.
Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of the most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.
Joe Sinnott is an American comic book artist. Working primarily as an inker, Sinnott is best known for his long stint on Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four, from 1965 to 1981, initially over the pencils of Jack Kirby. During his 60 years as a Marvel freelancer and then salaried artist working from home, Sinnott inked virtually every major title, with notable runs on The Avengers, The Defenders and Thor.
