Description

    John Romita Sr. - Original Cover Art for The Amazing Spider-Man #136 (Marvel, 1974). Among the finest Spidey vs. Goblin covers in the entire series run, and one of the few ever offered for public auction, this spectacular image is by the web-head's best-loved artist, the immortal John Romita Sr. Locked in mortal combat, Spidey and the Green Goblin tower over the cityscape, while below, their alter-egoes also crouch in angry confrontation. Originally Romita drew this cover on two separate sheets, which were combined in the printing process. Offered here is the original image of Spidey and the Goblin, which was inked on vellum. The foreground elements have all been re-created by a professional artist, and mounted on new backing board to replicate the finished cover. The logo, word balloons, and masthead elements are also replacements. Of special note is the fact that Romita illustrated the Spidey/Goblin image at twice-up size, which was quite rare for pieces from this time period. Considering that the battle between these two titans was the basis for the phenomenally successful "Spider-Man" feature film, and given Gobby's status as the Wall-Crawler's number-one foe, you could hardly do better than to add this classic image to your collection. Overall measurement is 13.25" x 17", with the original Spider-Man/Green Goblin image measuring 10.5" x 11.5". Signed by Romita on the right side.
