57. Jack Kirby and John Verpoorten original artwork for The Eternals #2 complete 17-page story "The Celestials". (Marvel, 1976) Accomplished in pencil and ink with paste-up elements on 11.5 x 16.5 in. comic art stock (the double-page spread counts as two pages, but is drawn on a single 17 x 23 in. board). Jack Kirby was truly excited about creating his new "Return of the Gods" project (renamed as The Eternals, but both titles are written on the original art pages) for Marvel Comics upon his return in 1976, and it certainly shows in the dynamic art he drew for this key issue of the book. Of the 17 story pages, this book contains no less than 5 incredible full-page splashes and a stunning double page spread! As an extra special bonus, all 5 of the splashes and the 2-page spread are each individually autographed by Jack Kirby! It should be noted that The Eternals is now being made into the next big Marvel movie franchise, so this is a rare opportunity to buy the first appearances of what are to be some major characters ("Ajak" and the "Celestials") in the Marvel cinematic universe. Think back-What if you had the same opportunity to buy the original artwork for the first appearances of "Thanos", "Groot", and "Rocket Racoon"? What are those worth today? Based on the incredible artistic merit of the book, combined with it being the first appearances of important Marvel cinematic characters, we feel this is arguably one of the finest complete key-issue Kirby stories from the 1970s ever to come up for auction. First page splash large artwork image has been excised from another art board and affixed. Exhibits some correction fluid. Otherwise artwork is in very good condition. $40,000 - $60,000
