    John Romita Sr. Amazing Spider-Man Annual #5 Unpublished Pages from "Here We Go-A-Plotting!" Original Art Group of 3 (Marvel, 1968). A rare lot full of historical value! Heritage is offering the original concept pages for what would become a four-page back-up feature in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #5. As published, it's a humorous look at a "typical" Spidey plotting session by artist Marie Severin. However, in these original layouts, John Romita Sr. provides an interesting alternate take on this tale, which includes an appearance by Flo Steinberg, who is missing in the published version. Also, there are depictions of Larry Lieber, Roy Thomas. Aunt May, J. Jonah Jameson, Dr. Octopus, and Mary Jane Watson. As a credit note, Larry Lieber has been attributed with assists. The three 11.5" x 17.5" pages were produced in graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board that are u affixed to black foam board /u with overall sizes of 13.75" x 22". The pages have light toning and/or smudging, handling wear, and are signed by John Romita Sr. on the bottom of every page. In Very Good condition. From the Spider-Steve Collection.

    More Information: Edit: Updated to include it is Larry Lieber pictured not Stan Lee
