DescriptionJohn Romita Sr. and Mike Esposito - Amazing Spider-Man #41 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1966). The rampaging Rhino makes his Marvel debut in spectacular fashion, running roughshod, right over the webbed wall-crawler! This dynamic "twice-up" cover shows the "Horns of the Rhino" busting through a concrete wall, while Spidey lies dazed in the background. Any "baby boomer" who bought this issue off the spinner-rack probably has the image firmly fixed in his memory -- it's that iconic. It's worth noting this was only John Romita Sr.'s third cover for the title -- clearly Jazzy Johnny was dedicated to making his own contribution to the legacy left behind by Sturdy Steve Ditko -- and for Marvelmaniacs, it doesn't get much better than this! The image area of the cover measures 13.25" x 20.25". The art is in Very Good condition, with some overall wear; there is a light crease at about the Rhino's eye-level, and two small tears in the left margin, one of which has been repaired with tape. There is a small chip out of the lower left corner which does not affect the artwork, and several pin-holes in the margins. None of this has much effect on the overwhelming power of the image, however -- this is one eye-popping display piece, showcasing John Romita Sr. at the height of his talent. It's not just a cool cover, it's a wonderful piece of Silver Age Marvel lore!
