DescriptionJohn Romita, Sr. Spidey Super-Stories #18 Kingpin Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1976). Throughout much of the 1970s, Romita contributed a run of spectacular covers to Spidey Super-Stories, an educational off-shoot published by Marvel in conjunction with the PBS "Electric Company" series that was designed to help very young children learn to read by presenting simplistic stories starring our favorite Web-Slinger. Offered here is a spectacular (and slightly unnerving) image, as Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, crushes a scale model of two buildings that somewhat resemble the World Trade Center towers. Interestingly enough, in the final printed version of this cover, the elements of the window, curtains, and wall were removed, making it seem as if the Kingpin was looming over the actual city. As with many of the Spidey Super-Stories covers, this has been inked on vellum, and then taped to a slightly larger Marvel strathmore board. Very clean, with virtually no white-out, and signed by Romita in the lower left corner. 11" x 17" and in Very Good condition.
