When Kirby moved from Marvel to DC at the start of the 1970s, he was set free. Able to draw the way he liked and write the stories he wanted to tell, he set off on turning out his "Fourth World" saga, telling the cosmosning tale of modern day gods. Kirby's take on the Greek titan Atlas was very much in keeping with this motif and this is a high quality example of the "King's" work from this time period, with bold figuration and otherworldly power filling the page.In many ways, this period is Kirby at his purest and more Kirby collectors are making this era a major focus of their collections. As a result, these pieces are much less likely to be found out on the market than they were a few years ago. This art has an image area of approximately 10 x 15 inches and is in excellent condition. The winner will own a piece of Kirby key issue history and be very pleased with this one as I have been. The art is in excellent condition measuring 10 x 15 inches Image area. Although, it has risen in value since then and will continue to do so.
