Description

Todd McFarlane Amazing Spider-Man #317 Venom Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1989). "Has Venom become kinder and gentler? Read our lips, Spidey -- no way." This play on the now-famous phrase spoken by then-American presidential candidate George H. W. Bush at the 1988 Republican National Convention adds a touch of levity to this cover for "The Sand and the Fury." Such primo McFarlane covers from his famed run on Amazing Spider-Man represent the absolute peak of late 1980s original art collecting-with those featuring the web-slinger's great nemesis Venom at the top of that list, so we expect very heated bidding on this Marvel masterwork. This pulse-pounding piece has an image area of 10" x 15", and aside from a stain by Spidey's foot, the art is in Excellent condition.

McFarlane, Todd:Todd McFarlane (Canadian, b. 1961): is a multi-talented cartoonist, writer, toy designer and entrepreneur, most celebrated for his work on Marvel’s Incredible Hulk, and Spider-Man, as well as on his own character, Spawn. In the early nineties, McFarlane became the first of a new breed of independent comic book superstars, thanks to the p[opularity of his work on Marvel’s titles. In 1992, he and several of the new wave of comics creators formed Image Comics. McFarlane based his hugely successful, occult, anti-hero Spawn on a character from his high school portfolio and updated the concept for the nineties. In recent years, McFarlane has focused most of his time on his entrepreneurial efforts, McFarlane Toys and Todd McFarlane Entertainment, a film and animation studio .
