IRON MAN #42! Marie Severin Cover Design Rough! Marvel Comics!

Yow! We all know that "Mirthful" Marie Severin provided tons of rough ideas for much of Marvel's early 70s comic covers, but few have survived for viewing today! Here, however is one that did! It's her cover sketch for the front of IRON MAN #42, from 1971! Even tho it's a very loose sketch (done on merry Marvel stationery, natch), all of the drama and conflict is evident in this powerful design! It's easy to see why Marie was the new go-to gal for dramatic cover art layouts! Below right is the finished cover, by "Gorgeous" George Tuska! Click to enlarge!
