    John Romita, Sr. - Original Cover Art for Spectacular Spider-Man #2 (Marvel, 1968). One of the most recognized and beloved covers of the Silver Age, this stunning piece of art was long thought to have been destroyed in a house fire years ago. Discovered recently in a private collection, this beautifully rendered painting visually sums up the classic enmity between the Green Goblin and Spider-Man. Romita Spider-Man covers, highly prized by collectors, command top prices in the original art market, and one would be hard-pressed to find a better example of this modern master's work. Measuring 13" x 17.5", this piece is in beautiful condition and will certainly be the centerpiece of even the most distinguished collection.
