    John Romita Sr. and Harry Rosenbaum - The Spectacular Spider-Man #1 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1968). For the premiere issue of their new black and white magazine featuring Spider-Man, Marvel brought in "men's magazine" artist Harry Rosenbaum to paint the finished cover. Working from John Romita's tight cover design, Rosenbaum rendered the image in acrylic paint on illustration board, striving to create a striking three dimensional image of the webbed wall-crawler in action. The magazine hit the stands in April of 1968, at the very zenith of the Silver Age. "Lo, this Monster" featured plot elements that made it contemporaneous with the sub-plots in Amazing Spider-Man #59. Harry Rosenbaum also painted the cover for Skywald's Nightmare #4, but it is comic book legend John Romita's terrific composition that captures the excitement and essence of the Spider-Man we all know and love. The image area measures approximately 11.5" x 15", and the lettering "placement indication" is painted on an acetate overlay. The art is in Excellent condition. The cover art for Spectacular Spider-Man #2 commanded a sensational price in Heritage Comics' 2002 Signature auction, and this piece will certainly be a welcome addition to even the most distinguished collection.
