    Description

    Gil Kane Amazing Spider-Man #97 Partial Story Preliminary Artwork Original Art Group of 8 (Marvel, 1971). Key pages from a key issue in the history of Marvel Comics! This group of eight showcase pages shows you how master draftsman Gil Kane put together this important issue. Issues #96-98 did not bear the Comics Code Authority stamp. The CCA would not approve these issues because of the on-page drug use by one of the characters, in spite of the fact that it was an anti-drug story in the first place. Harry Osborn's turn to drugs was a key factor in his relationship with Peter Parker and eventually led him to temporarily become the second Green Goblin. This group includes the rough initial pencil designs for pages 8-11, page 13 (this is the first take on it), and pages 15-17. Image area is approximately 10" x 15" each. Slight tanning with some edge and corner wear, otherwise in Excellent condition.
