Description

    Frank Miller and Klaus Janson - Amazing Spider-Man Annual #15 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1981). It's always a special event when an key Frank Miller cover is offered for auction -- and especially so when the cover hails from one of Frank Miller's most beloved periods -- the years when Marveldom assembled first thrilled to Miller's ground-breaking storytelling in Daredevil at the close of the Bronze Age. This sensational Spider-Man cover features all-out action, as the wall-crawler is spotlighted on the front page of the Daily Bugle. A Pulitzer Prize-worthy shot captured Spider-Man as he narrowly dodged being blown to bits by the Punisher's deadly fire. Miller's rendition of Punisher, here, and subsequently in the pages of Daredevil, was a key factor in catapulting the character from his back-up status into a full-blown, fan-favorite and major player in the Marvel Universe. Miller's Marvel covers were both innovative and iconic. They served as a creative arena where he developed new storytelling techniques. This beautiful cover is a perfect case-in-point. Drawn on Craft-Tint paper, the cover capitalizes on a duo-tone shading effect to create the illusion of a newspaper photograph. And who is reading the Bugle? -- only Doc Ock, who sips a cup of steaming java while reading about the war between Spidey and the Punisher.
