And check out OUR NEWLY LISTED ITEMS. This is an important and historic piece of original art by Dave Stevens, who is considered by many to be one of the finest comic artists in the history of the medium. From 1972, this predates Stevens' 1982 introduction of The Rocketeer by a decade. 3 from the story Teran! While we are not certain, we believe this may actually be the very first published artwork by this legendary artist.

Even in his earlier period, you can already see the influence on Stevens of such comic book and fantasy art giants as Burne Hogarth, Frank Frazetta, Jeff Jones, and Joe Kubert. And you can also see that by this point Steven's beautiful inked lines had the elegance and precision he would become known for as a master of the art form. The piece measures approximately 11" by 14", and is in very good condition with some use of whiteout. Stevens shows great use of technique to get different shading, including some use of zipatone. Some of the zipatone has discolored slightly (this is very common), but this did not really come out in the scan. So please note some of the zipatone area is slightly more yellow/orange than the way it appears in the scan. This is a truly rare opportunity to acquire an important piece, by someone who was not only one of the great creators of GGA, but also one of the greatest overall comic artists.

This is an outstanding piece, which would look fantastic framed and prominently displayed, and would be a definite showpiece in any Stevens collection. Check out our other auctions for more great items.
