Bill Everett Silver Surfer #1 Story Page 1 Title Splash Original Color Guide Comic Art (Marvel Comics, 1968). From Marvel Comic’s Silver Age – Original color guide comic art of “Silver Surfer”.

Science Fiction Superhero storyline written by the iconic Stan Lee with Biblical parallels and a Christ-like figure. Stan Lee hired talented Marvel art legend Bill Everett, who illustrated the Sub-Mariner in Marvel Comics No. 1, to hand-color John Buscema’s art to this special seminal Giant-Size #1 Issue.

Norrin Radd saved his home planet Zenn-La from the planet devourer known as Galactus by agreeing to serve as his herald. In return, Galactus spared Zenn-La and granted Radd with the Power Cosmic. Radd acquired vast power, a new body and a surfboard on which he could travel faster than the speed of light. Radd was transformed into the Silver Surfer. One who roamed the cosmos in search of planets for Galactus to consume. When the Surfer came upon Earth, he met the Fantastic Four, who helped him rediscover his nobility of spirit. Betraying Galactus, the Surfer saved Earth, but was exiled there as punishment.

Bill Everett was an American comic book artist and writer best known for creating Namor the Sub-Mariner as well as co-creating Daredevil with writer Stan Lee for Marvel.

John Buscema was an American comic book artist and is considered by many to be included on Marvel Comics’ Mount Rushmore of creative talents. Best known for his run on the series The Avengers and The Silver Surfer and for over 200 stories featuring the sword and sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian.

The Art:

Everett utilized a color palette from the Flash Gordon era and the colors seem as brilliant today as they most-likely were over 50 years ago. Accomplished in watercolors on 6 x 8 1/4 inch paper. It is housed in 2 inch archival matting. A truly rare opportunity to own a historically significant piece to one of Marvel’s most beloved characters. In excellent condition.
