    John Romita Sr. - Marvel Tales #36 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1972). The Kingpin, ever sensitive about a certain false assumption, is quick to explain to Spidey, "You think I'm just a fat man, wall-crawler, but it's all muscle!" And to prove his point, he slings old web-head around like a cheap sack of tomatoes, landing our hero in a rooftop chimney. Ouch! It actually makes for a much more exciting cover scene than the one for Amazing Spider-Man #51, which presented the same story. The image area on this beauty measures 10" x 15", and is in Very Good condition. There are two minor glue stains, one by Spider-Man's right elbow, and another by the Kingpin's left foot. The cover retains its original title logo and type stats. A Bronze Age Spider-Man cover featuring the Kingpin? Here's your chance to bid on a real treasure.
