    Description

    Journey into Mystery #73 Bethlehem pedigree (Marvel, 1961) CGC VF/NM 9.0 White pages. Overstreet calls this issue a "reverse prototype" of Spider-Man, and indeed, it features a spider that's accidentally exposed to radiation. Could this have been a try-out of sorts on the part of Smilin' Stan Lee? While the exact connection to Spidey remains speculative, the hard fact is that this is the highest-graded copy of this book that CGC has certified to date. The two masters of Marvel monsterdom, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, provided the art, with Kirby following up his spider-themed cover on #64 with another equally icky arachnid. Overstreet 2004 VF/NM 9.0 value = $405; NM- 9.2 value = $540.
