Comic book connoisseurs make a serious play for this fabulous Iron Man issue #114 splash page art panel. Measuring 10-1/2 x 15-7/8", this original artwork panel is titled "The Menace of... Arsenal" and comprised the first page of the Iron Man issue in question. The man responsible for this heavily detailed scene is noted at the top of the page as "Keith Giffin, Guest-Penciler". Accompanying the lead character are his Avengers cohorts Beast, Yellowjacket, Wonder Man and Vision, along with villain Unicorn, who's goes on a rampage in this issue, awakening the robot Arsenal. Adhered at bottom is the publishing indica panel, which notes the date of publication as "September, 1978". The top border contains editorial marks and a swath of adhesive residue, while the reverse is stamped with a dated copyright credit, providing excellent provenance. Showing just minor touches of wear at several points on the perimeter, this magnificent treasure presents handsomely and will make for dynamic display. With all things related to Marvel's super-heroes soaring to new heights in value and demand on a continuing basis, this original art panel positions as a blue chip investment and a real Bronze Age classic collectible.
