1972 THOR Cover! Original Marvel Comics Art! John Romita Sr.! Mangog!

Just when you thought there were no more reasons to go on living, here comes the cover art to THOR # 197! Put away that rope, and look at that impeccable composition, the imbued drama, the sterling ink-lines, and the plain excitement of this remarkable cover image from the Bronze Age of MarvelMania! Created by (who else?) John Romita Sr., this image had to have grabbed any potential reader or passers-by back in the day! Note also the lack of then-ubiquitous text or word balloons! This sensational scene simply didn't need any extra adornment! Click to enlarge!
