Denys Cowan/Larry Stroman/Steve Rude/Adam Hughes/Mike Mignola/Matt Wagner artwork; 1989-92; image size 32" x 20"Acquiring commissions from artists is as old as conventions themselves, it's one of the things that connects fans to creators. When people go above and beyond is when these drawings become truly special. This fan, who assembled this over several conventions in the late 1980s/early 1990s, had the wherewithal to come prepared with a huge board on which he had artists depict Marvel's earliest characters from the Timely era. Namor, the Sub-Mariner by Denys Cowan, The Whizzer by Larry Stroman, Captain America by Steve Rude, Bucky by Adam Hughes, Toro by Mike Mignola, and The Human Torch by Matt Wagner. Each artist truly embraced the concept and provided a wonderful illustration that both honors the character and shows off each of their individual artistic quirks. A truly wonderful and unique piece that would be a spectacular addition to any collection. Pencil on board. Art is in excellent condition. Signed by each artist beneath their contribution.
