    Larry Lieber and Frank Giacoia Super Spider-Man with The Super-Heroes #189 Cover Original Art (Marvel UK, 1976). One of Marvel UK's early titles, The Super-Heroes was cancelled on the 14th of February 1976, (Valentine's Day, bummer) and a week later it merged with Spider-Man Comics Weekly, which retitled itself Super Spider-Man with the Super-Heroes as of #158. The new title adopted a "landscape" format, whereby the comic was printed longer than it was tall, with each page of the UK comic reprinting two US pages in black and white, reduced in size alongside one another. Here, penciler Larry Lieber and inker Frank Giacoia turn an all-new cover featuring Spider-Man, the Jackal, and the Grizzly for the reprint of Amazing Spider-Man #140. Created in ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board, with an image area of 13.25" x 10.5". The title and header are stat paste-ups, while the text bubbles are hand-lettered paste-ups with some discoloration and glue residue bleed through. One bubble is coming loose, and another has a whiteout text correction. There is faint toning, light smudging, small spots of soiling, adhesive residue in the margins, and pinholes. Lieber has signed in the bottom left area of the image. In Very Good condition.
