DESCRIPTION
Romita cover; origin and 1st app. Luke Cage
Thanks to a hit series on Netflix, Luke Cage is a hot commodity in the comic book world, and when a superhero hits the big time, his or her origin story can exponentially shoot up in value. This classic cover by John Romita hints at the tales of urban action within the pages, and the interior art by George Tuska and Billy Graham is equally impressive.


Artists Information

John Romita was one of the driving forces behind Marvel's Silver Age, he took up the reins on Spider-Man following the departure of Steve Ditko with issue #38. Romita's run on Spider-Man would be long and significant, introducing characters including Mary Jane Watson, the Kingpin and many others. He would be a major contributor to the entire Marvel line throughout the 1970s including designing the look of The Punisher.

George Tuska used a variety of pen names including Carl Larson, was an American comic book and newspaper comic strip artist best known for his 1940s work on various Captain Marvel titles and the crime fiction series Crime Does Not Pay and for his 1960s work illustrating Iron Man and other Marvel Comics characters.
