    Pre-Lot Text

    The following five lots are the property of film producer Lee Kramer who, in the late 1970s, acquired the film rights for the Marvel Superhero The Silver Surfer from Marvel Comics and Stan Lee. Kramer devoted the best part of this decade to the development of this project, which sadly never came into production. The evocative artwork in the following lots by Michael Brand and Sushe provides a tantalizing idea of how visually exciting this project might have been.
