John Romita pencils and inks; cover; 1981; image size 8" x 8"

Superb all-Romita Spidey cover from the Bubble Funnies promotional series that was originally packaged with a stick of gum, featuring a great hand to tentacle battle image from the story "In the Clutches of Doc Ock!". This is a rare opportunity to own a Spider-Man cover by one of the artists who defined the character, Romita's contribution to early Marvel comics can't be overstated, and his work on Spider-Man in particular was near and dear to him. This cover features a classic confrontation between everyone's favorite wall-crawler and one of his most iconic foes in Doctor Octopus. The artwork was drawn on an 8" x 10" piece of board which was affixed to an 11" x 17" board with recreated stats and logo, the art never had a logo or stats from the time of publication. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition. Signed by Romita.
