    Ross Andru and Frank Giacoia Amazing Spider-Man #159 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1976). Hammerhead is comin' thru! Here's an iconic and memorable cover from Spidey's Bronze Age period, featuring Spidey foes Hammerhead and Doctor Octopus. Originally, this cover artwork did not actually have Hammerhead on it. John Romita Sr. provided some art revisions/alterations and Hammerhead was likely on an acetate overlay. As this page does not come with an overlay, we feel there is likely no John Romita Sr. art on this page. Please note: At some point, someone has inked Hammerhead back into the scene, using a black ink ballpoint pen. It is possible that a Marvel artist added this detail at a convention by request of the owner, as Hammerhead is seen at a slightly different angle on the published cover. Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". A regular Sparta World Color cover template Bristol board was cut out and mounted over the art as a production frame leaving some glue residue on the edges. The logo/corner box is simply a photocopy taped over the top of the original art page. All things considered, this page is in Good condition.
