Description

John Romita Sr. and Frank Giacoia Amazing Spider-Man #169 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1977). You say you want a Spider-Man cover brimming with drama and intrigue? Well look no further, True Believer! This Jazzy John Romita cover for "Confrontation" has it all, and then some. No one, but no one, can gloat quite like J. Jonah Jameson, and it looks as though he has the revealing photos of Spider-Man's secret identity that he's dreamt of for so many years (worse still, they show Spidey ditching the infamous clone). Each Spider-snap is more exciting than the last, all courtesy of two of Marvel's greatest and best-loved artists. The image area of this Marvel masterwork is approximately 10" x 15", and it retains all of its original logo stats. Aside from some light overall paper aging, the art is in Excellent condition.

Romita Sr., John:(American, b. 1930): John Romita Sr. started drawing comics after spending a year in commercial art. His first jobs were done for the Atlas group in 1949, and he drew mostly horror and romance stories, but also war, western, and crime features. After the Atlas implosion, Romita Sr. went to DC, where he drew romance stories for eight years. After that, it was back to Marvel, where he initially inked The Avengers and drew Daredevil. However, Romita Sr.'s most celebrated work was done for the Amazing Spider-Man, the feature he took over when Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko left Marvel in 1966. Under Romita Sr.'s tenure, Spider-Man became one of the comic field's most popular characters. Romita Sr. left his regular Spider-Man art chores in the early seventies to become an Art Director at Marvel in the Special Projects Department, and as Art Director for Marvel Books. In 1977, Romita Sr. briefly drew the syndicated Spider-Man newspaper comic strip. His son, John Romita Jr., is also an artist at Marvel .
