Before the King of Comics_ debut in the pages of our hallowed (and now humbled) magazine, we present his mind-blowing artwork in a series of limited edition blacklight prints!
Barry Geller & Jack Kirby_s _LORD OF LIGHT_ artwork is set to appear in color for the first time in Heavy Metal #276, and to celebrate, we_re offering a chance to own a piece of history in bold psychedelic blacklight!
14 works of art from the Lord of Light project have been selected to be meticulously colored by master Mark Englert.
The print at right entitled _Hostel of Hawkana_ measures 36" x 24" and is the FOURTH available in a limited edition series. Each print was limited to just 50 copies and several were previously pre sold at the San Diego Comic Con so these are now available in EXTREMELY LIMITED numbers.
Pieces by Geller & Kirby, mostly unseen before now, are part of American history as they were the artwork used by the CIA for OPERATION: ARGO, which helped free American embassy workers during the Iranian coup in 1979.
