    John Romita Sr. - Original Cover Art to The Amazing Spider-Man #69 (Marvel, 1968). A truly spectacular cover from the classic John Romita, Sr. run on ASM. This is one of the most indelible images of the late '60s, as Spidey seems all but defeated in the vice-grip of his "biggest" foe, The Kingpin. From the brilliant composition (the low angle emphasizes both Spidey's relative helplessness and the Kingpin's enormous bulk) to the satin-smooth inks, this cover showcases Romita at the height of his abilities. Silver Age Spider-Man covers are in high demand, and this is one of the best. Excellent condition, with a small (1/2") tear in the left margin, and light glue stains around the "Crush the Kingpin!" stat. 11 1/2" x 17 1/2".
