DescriptionGil Kane and John Romita Sr. Amazing Spider-Man #151 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1975). This "Amazing" cover has been described as simply one of the best Spider-Man covers ever created. It has a nice bit of history as well, as it is an homage to the iconic cover of Amazing Spider-Man #33 by the incredible Steve Ditko. Most sources list the art as by John Romita, Senior. However, this original art is signed at the bottom by both Gil Kane and Romita Sr. Furthermore, on the backside, in Romita Sr.'s own handwriting it reads "Gil Kane + John Romita" and is signed by JRSR again. Given the overall "Romita-ness" of it, our best guess is that Gil Kane supplied the breakdown and Romita provided the finished art. It is produced in ink over graphite on Sparta World Color Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The Logo and masthead are a vintage stat paste-up. The published cover did not have the web in the logo, however. The word balloon and cover blurb on the printed cover are not included as they were added either at the production level or on an overlay of some type. They do not appear to have ever been physically on this artwork. With only slight tanning, this stunning piece is in otherwise Excellent condition.
