Todd McFarlane Original Art. Coyote #11 1st Splash and 1st Published Work
Coyote 11 was Todd McFarlanes 1st professional comic book work. It was the beginning of the career of one of the best known comic book artists in fandom and someone who impacted comics as only a few others have. This is the first page and introduction of Todd to what would soon be a rabid fan base as he put his mark on first the Hulk and then Spider-man and then Spawn. This is an interesting piece of comic book history. Its his first published page and his first splash.
Its the beginning of the McFarlane era and his impact really cant be overstated. He brought to comics a design sense which is something that a lot of artists attempt but only a handful can pull off. While he was redesigning established characters, he created his own, upended the business status quo of comics with Image and then build a toy empire on top of that and then branched into movies. The art is in great shape and has been in my possession for about 27 years. The glue on the credits list gave up the ghost as I was taking the pics for this auctions.
