Item Description
11.5x15.5" thin artboard features artist Larry Hama's pen and ink original art for two-page spread of the July 1974 issue of "Marvel Premiere" #16, published by Marvel Comics. Hama is best known to comic book readers as a writer and editor for Marvel Comics, where he wrote the "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" comic book series based on the Hasbro toyline. This original art from the issue after Iron Fist was introduced features the origin of Danny Rand as Iron Fist. Two-page spread features Rand having just beaten Shou-Lao, The Undying. Upon Shou-Lao's defeat, the power of the Iron Fist was passed on to him as can be seen in first panel, where the mark of the dragon appears on his chest. Art features seven panels, showing Rand entering cavern and approaching glowing brazier which contained the Heart of the Dragon. Rand approaches it and plunges his hands into the molten mass time and time again, fully claiming its power as evidenced by his glowing hands in last panel. Page has been inked by Dick Giordano. Pin holes at corners. Margins have some scattered dark moisture staining at center left and top center, but these do not affect art. Last panel has some trace staining, but overall, artboard is Fine/VF w/VF/Exc. art. Historic origin art for a Bronze Age Marvel icon.
