AMAZING and HISTORIC page by only THE KING himself, coupled with the best inker for Kirby works. This page just screams action with Cap and the Panther in EVERY panel. As if this wasn’t enough for a frantic Marvelite, this is the first time the Panther and Cap ever meet, and do so in style with a gentlemanly skirmish to prove each others authenticity! Wow! Now you’ve seen it all, get your marching papers and head out true believer – just use your powers for good.
One may also note that the center splash on the page is essentially a mirror image of the cover image to Tales of Suspense #98, making this page that much more special! Image of cover provided for reference only.
The piece is in excellent condition and is all the more amazing in person. The composition and perspective are true to form in Kirby’s peak era, with believable and exacting form and flow. Sinnott’s inks add great depth and a super clean and sharp style that provides crisp relief and enhance just the right aspects of each panel. A historic and museum-quality example from the Silver era.
