    John Romita Sr. Amazing Spider-Man Annual #3 Spider-Man vs. the Hulk and the Mighty Avengers Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1966). Face Front, Spider-fans -- and feast your eyes on the ultimate "twice-up" John Romita Sr. Spider-Man cover. It's worth noting this was the first of only three Annual covers that Romita Sr. drew from this era. Jazzy Johnny was already making his own colossal contribution to the sterling legacy left behind by Sturdy Steve Ditko (who is represented in the two photostat images of Spidey vs. Doctor Octopus at the bottom of the page). Large-size Marvel covers are rarely offered in the marketplace, let alone any from a Silver Age Annual. With its iconic images of the Hulk and the Mighty Avengers, this cover for "To Become an Avenger" is not just a knock-out -- it's nothing less than a peerless, priceless piece of Spider-Man art. Any Marvelite who snatched this Annual off the spinner-rack has this spectacular slugfest seared into his memory. For True Believers, an art showpiece doesn't get any better than this. The image area measures 13" x 20", and the art is in Excellent condition, with a few scattered glue stains that have little effect on the overwhelming power of the image. Please note that all of the figures in the main image area are original art. Iron Man and the Wasp were drawn on separate pieces of paper from the other figures. Includes the original title logo and other production elements.
