    Gil Kane Amazing Spider-Man #151 Cover Preliminary Artwork Original Art (Marvel, 1975). One of the most iconic covers ever produced for a Spider-Man comic, and it is actually an homage to one of the other most iconic covers for Amazing Spider-Man... issue #33 by the great Steve Ditko. This one was finished by John Romita, Sr., who many attribute the cover to completely; however, this prelim by Gil Kane should put that theory to bed permanently! The finished cover art sold through Heritage recently for over $150,000.00. This Gil Kane prelim piece is stunning. It shows that his prelim work is more complete and better composed than many other artists' finished pieces... and if this great marker over graphite piece were not enough, there is also a bonus Gil Kane marker sketch of Spidey on the backside. Wow! A two-fer and a bit of Marvel history all in one piece of great art. Produced on a sheet of very thin 11" x 17" paper, there are wrinkles and minor rips, with some creases in the top portion and a few minor stains. Overall in Good condition.
