Earliest unused Spider-Man page known to exist! John Romita's preliminary pencils in their purest form on this amazing (pun intended) page featuring Spidey and an unmasked Green Goblin. These panels were all used in a reordered form and the tear sheets of those pages are included for reference. Also included is a copy of another penciled page from the issue by Romita. Pencil on board. Art is in excellent condition.

John Romita was one of the driving forces behind Marvel's Silver Age, he took up the reins on Spider-Man following the departure of Steve Ditko with issue #38 making this page from Romita's second ever issue on the title. Romita's run on Spider-Man would be long and significant, introducing characters including Mary Jane Watson, The Kingpin and many others.
