    John Romita Spider-Man Sketch Original Art (c. 1970s). Jazzy John Romita the Elder was for many True Believers the ultimate Spider-Man artist when he took over the art chores with Amazing Spider-Man #39 in 1966. For a close family friend, he created this portrait of our favorite web-spinner in action, drawing the character in black marker and colored pencil on Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 9" x 12", matted to an overall 14" x 16". The page was hung on a child's wall for many years, and there are some condition problems, including tack holes in the corners, a small hole above Spidey's head, paper tanning, and assorted stains, and an inscription in red marker in the upper left has all but vanished due to light exposure. Still, we feel the power of Romita's art shines through, and is still attractive enough to be displayed proudly.
