Marvel Two-in-One.
Issue 21, pages 10 & 16.

Artist: Ron Wilson
Inker: Pablo Marcos

     Okay, the top is admittedly not the most exciting of pages (blasphemy- no super-heroes!), but I always figured that I'd never be able to afford one of the ones from this issue that would have the Thing and Doc Savage side by side. Besides, it nicely shows the double-storyline going on side by side in two different time periods here. On the left is Thomas Lightner before his stint in villainy. In his few appearances he has certainly had one of the most diverse careers around...

     I love the second page - interesting panel design with a nice shot of everyone going after him (the small image in the far right of the group scene is indeed Doc Savage - I did end up with a page with both after all!). I love the bullets bending aroung him! In the lower left panel, Blacksun looks really cool here. This is one of those characters who really looks great in just black and white.

     I ran across the top page on EBay in April of 2003. The second page is a longer story - it came up on EBay in June 2005, and I really wanted it, but things got busy and I was unable to put in a bid on the final day. Happily, at least it went to someone I knew would appreciate it, Brian S, a fellow MTIO junkie much bigger into art collection than I am. Cut to November 2006, when a page from MTIO #6 popped up on EBay with what seemed like a slightly-too-low "Buy It Now" price. Though it wasn't a page I was excited about (no Ben, though it had a nice Dr. Strange), I grabbed it before someone without that MTIO-love could. Anyway, MTIO 6 turns out to be one of Brian's favorites, so at my suggestion we ended up swapping pages in February of 2007, with him getting that MTIO 6 page and me getting this MTIO 21 page. Financially, probably a bad deal for me, but I love this particular issue, so I'm fine with that!
