1977 - Anatomy of a cover - Incredible Hulk #208

"Dave Cockrum - Original Unused Cover Art for The Incredible Hulk #208 (Marvel, undated). The Green Goliath battles blasting baddies on this unused cover by X-veteran Dave Cockrum. The cover that was actually used, by Marie Severin and Frank Giacoia is, in many ways, weaker than this dramatic masterwork, which is jam-packed with blistering battle action! Fully finished in pen and ink, there is evidence of blue pencil markings underneath the drawing, and moderate use of whiteout. The speed lines have been created by actually gouging into the paper, giving them a rough, textured appearance. Measuring approximately 11" x 17", with an approximate image area of 9.75" x 15", this page displays some tanning along the edges of the image, but is otherwise in excellent condition. It has been signed by the artist near the lower left edge."
