We're in the middle of ScanFest: Spring 2014, so we thought we'd share some of our scans. This one is a presentation piece for a proposed Ruby Spears cartoon featuring a gymnast.

Here’s another piece of art Kirby withheld from Marvel: a splash page of the Watcher in his space suit. There’s evidence that Kirby intended to reveal that the Watcher and Galactus were from the same race/planet/people, but Stan Lee had other plans. This pencil art was first published in Kirby Unleashed in 1971.
