A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION Rich Buckler pencils and inks; cover; 1972; image size 10" x 15" Ka-Zar vs. Man-Thing; 1st Man-Thing cover appearance!
The Man-Thing first appeared in the Marvel magazine Savage Tales #1, his next appearance, and first in a comic book, was in Astonishing Tales #12, neither of these issues features the character on the cover. This cover represents the Man-Thing's very first appearance on the cover of any publication. Seen here, the shambling swamp creature is getting the upper hand on Ka-Zar the Savage while his trusty saber-tooth tiger Zabu comes to his aid, all while AIM soldiers close in. A rare opportunity to own an important piece of comic history. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition. Signed by Buckler.
