DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
Gil Kane pencils/Tom Palmer inks; cover; 1975; image size 10" x 15"

Stunning, fresh to market cover featuring the Dread Dormammu hovering menacingly over Doctor Strange and Clea while a horde of Dark Dimension demons approaches them from the front. A classic Doctor Strange Bronze Age cover featuring his signature foe, with exquisite drawing from Kane and Palmer, the detail in the creatures in the foreground is really something, you can see the love that went into the creation of this. This piece has been hidden away for almost 40 years and Doctor Strange covers of this quality very rarely come to market. A worthy addition to any collection. Pen and ink. Art is in very good condition, there is some discoloration from glue residue from the time of production.

Artists Information

Gil Kane was a Latvian-born American comics artist whose career spanned the 1940s to the 1990s and virtually every major comics company and character. Kane co-created the modern-day versions of the superheroes Green Lantern and the Atom for DC Comics, and co-created Iron Fist with Roy Thomas for Marvel Comics. He was involved in such major storylines as that of The Amazing Spider-Man #96–98, which, at the behest of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, bucked the then-prevalent Comics Code Authority to depict drug abuse, and ultimately spurred an update of the Code. Kane additionally pioneered an early graphic novel prototype, His Name Is... Savage, in 1968, and a seminal graphic novel, Blackmark, in 1971. In 1997, he was inducted into both the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.

Tom Palmer is an award winning comic book artist who's best known for his ink and color work with Marvel comics. Tom's most notable works include The Avengers, Uncanny X-Men and Doctor Strange.
