    John Romita Sr. and Jim Mooney Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine #1 and Amazing Spider-Man #116 Page 10 Original Art Plus Bonus Art Panel (Marvel, 1968/1973). Here's a piece with a wonderful bit of history behind it. In 1968, Marvel launched Spidey's second concurrent title with Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine. That first issue featured "Lo, This Monster", who was referred to as Man Monster in the story. Five years later, Marvel took that story, split it into three issues of Amazing Spider-Man (#116-118), and made several art and text alterations to fit it into the on-going soap opera of Peter Parker's then-current life. The villain was also renamed "The Smasher" at that time. Originally page 10, when it was reprinted in ASM #116 as page 9, two word balloons were pasted over in panel three and an entire new original art panel four was pasted in to tie the story back to Spider-Man's missing mask. Note the dot in his eyes for this story, as he was wearing a children's Halloween mask instead. That replacement panel - which can be seen at HA.com - has come loose, revealing more original art below. These pieces are produced in ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10.5" x 15.75". They are tanned, with whiteout art corrections, and some production oil stains on the left side of the full page. Overall in Very Good condition.
