    Steve Ditko - Original Art for The Amazing Spider-Man #27, page 16 (Marvel, 1965). Some superheroes just can't catch a break. After Aunt May throws his original Spider-suit in the trash, Peter has to buy a spare at a local costume shop. But, wallopin' websnappers, it's just a cheap imitation that starts to fall apart as soon as he bounds across his first roof. What's a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man to do? On this classic page, Peter finally disposes of the offending costume, resolving never to buy a superhero costume at a rummage sale again! In excellent condition, this page measures approximately 13.5" x 19.5" with an image area of approximately 12.5" x 18.5". Ditko Spider-Man pages are truly the gold standard of the art collecting hobby, and few examples are as nice as this.
