DescriptionJohn Buscema and Frank Giacoia Marvel Tales #39 Cover Spider-Man Original Art (Marvel, 1972). Doctor Octopus is cover featured, and Spidey is upset with Doc Ock for giving Aunt May a fright! While the insides of the comic were a reprint of 1967's "The Tentacles and the Trap" from Amazing Spider-Man #54, the cover was all-new, befitting the picture-frame layout Marvel was using at the time. Signed by Buscema in the lower margin. The cover is created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The top header (with a bit of production tape), corner box, and logo are original stats. Spidey's word balloon and the bottom text are stat paste-ups as well. This piece is on several layers of Bristol board as the art was cut and repositioned at the time of creation, including one of Ock's tentacles, the flying gun, and other elements. Ock's left ankle has a minor rip in it that may have happened when it was slit to allow the text to slide behind it. Overall in Very Good condition.
