    Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko Amazing Spider-Man #8 Splash Page 1 "Spider-Man Tackles the Torch" Original Art (Marvel, 1964). Let the trumpets blare, and the banners wave. Here's your chance to win a magnificent moment in Marvel lore. In this masterpiece, a spiteful Spider-Man drops in to date Dorrie Evans, the Human Torch's high school sweetheart. This early crossover tale spotlighted an all-star team-up - not just webhead and hothead, but also three of the House of Ideas' most important architects, Stan "The Man" Lee, Jack "King" Kirby and "Sturdy" Steve Ditko. Throw a 1963 Sting Ray into the scene and - this splash is a swinging' sixties sensation. 'Nuff said. The page has an image area of 12" x 18", and the art is in Excellent condition.
