DescriptionJohn Romita - Original Cover Art for Amazing Spider-Man #156 (Marvel, 1976). John Romita's impact on the Marvel universe of characters can not be overstated. His work on Daredevil and Captain America alone would have ensured him a favored place in the hearts of Marvel fans. But his work on the Spider-Man titles has established a standard for the character that every subsequent artist has referenced. This is an awesome example of Romita's talent for filling space with minute detail without cluttering the image. Thirteen characters are present, including most of Peter Parker's supporting cast and the first appearance of Mirage. The precise inking by John Romita is a wonder to behold. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of lines have been applied side by side without diminishing the specific illustrative quality of each element in the image. This fantastic image was rendered on vellum and applied to the illustration paper. All of the title and text stats are recent replacements. A 5" tear at the bottom right corner of the illustration paper has been professionally repaired. This piece measures approximately 12.75" x 18.5" and is in, otherwise, great condition.
