Description

    John Romita Sr. and Frank Giacoia Amazing Spider-Man #100 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1971). One of the most iconic covers from Marvel's (at the time) most well-known character! Fans were excited to see pencils by John Romita Sr., a spider-artist revered for his nearly 5-year long run on the title from issue #39 through #95. This is also possibly Marvel's greatest "floating heads cover" ever, as this beauty featured pretty much anyone who was anyone in the Spider-verse! His supporting cast (Aunt May, Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane, Harry Osborn, J. Jonah Jameson, Betty Brant, etc.) are all present as you would expect, along with the major spidey-villains: Doc Ock, Vulture, Scorpion, Rhino, the Lizard, the Beetle (.. ever notice how many of Spider-Man's enemies are based on animals?), Sandman, Kingpin, Kraven the Hunter, Doctor Doom, Green Goblin, and Mysterio. There are also many of his more obscure friends and foes... the Prowler, Captain Stacy, Robbie Robertson, Ringmaster, the Shocker, and a guy named Joe! You can pour over this piece for a long time and still notice someone new!
    Created in ink over blue pencil on World Color Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The corner box and logo are paper paste-ups. The "100th Anniversary Issue" banner is missing, leaving the original art below visible. You can see how some faces were obscured and then added to other places on the cover. The top of Kingpin's head became Mysterio's dome helmet, and a paste-up of Kingpin was added to the top. Likewise, Jameson's head is an original art paste-up. Signed by Romita in the lower margin.
