    Description

    John Romita Sr. - Original Art for Spider-Man Adventures #1, page 1 (Marvel, 1994). Many artists have drawn Spider-Man over the years, but few have had the impact of "Jazzy" John Romita, Sr. Given the unenviable task of taking over from Steve Ditko, the strip's co-creator, Romita managed to make Spidey his own, imbuing the strip with a slick, polished style that appealed to a wide range of readers. Under Romita's influence, Spider-Man became a cultural phenomenon, who is, today, one of the world's most recognizable four-color heroes. The piece offered here is classic Romita: Spidey webbing his way across Manhattan, with the Chrysler Building in the background. Measuring approximately 11" x 17" overall, this piece is in excellent condition and is signed by the artist in the lower right.
