Check out this stunning, INCREDIBLY HISTORIC 1959 Large Art "BEST PAGE IN THE STORY" page and Pre-Hero Monster COVER Story, which was penciled and inked by the great STEVE DITKO, from the classic story titled: "I Saw the Invasion of the Stone Men!" This is 1 of the best penciled and inked Steve Ditko Marvel pages you will ever see! Rarely did Steve Ditko have an opportunity to draw "BIG FOOT" monster stories in the early PRE-HERO Marvel era, as Stan Lee almost exclusively would give these giant monster stories to Jack Kirby to draw! This great art is 1 of the EARLIEST Pre-Hero Monster story pages and 1 of the earliest Steve Ditko Marvel art pages EVER offered for public sale, with a comics Code Authority stamp date on back of MAY 13, 1959! This awesome page is from the story where stone men creatures from inside the Earth come up to the surface to cause havoc to us HUMANS! This art came out a full 3 years "BEFORE" Spider-Man ever appeared in a comic book (In Amazing Fantasy #15!) This Lee-Ditko story proved so popular that it was reprinted AGAIN in Marvel's VERY FIRST ANNUAL comic book: Strange Tales Annual #1 in 1962! Stan Lee in 2009 described these "short, five-page strips that Steve and I did together", as "odd fantasy tales that I'd dream up with O. Henry-type endings." Giving an early example of what would later be known as the "Marvel Method" of writer-artist collaboration, Lee said, "All I had to do was give Steve a one-line description of the plot and he'd be off and running. He'd take those skeleton outlines I had given him and turn them into classic little works of art that ended up being far cooler than I had any right to expect!" With top notch Steve Ditko Amazing Spider-Man pages selling for over 100K nowadays.... Don't pass up this RARE OPPORTUNITY to own a stunning "TOP NOTCH" ALL Ditko penciled and inked rare BIGFOOT Marvel monster page from way back in 1959! ALL art on our website (including this one) are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payments, and trades are always considered towards "ANY" art on our website!
