My Fascination with Spider-Man began when I purchased the two comic books shown above in 1970. These two well-read, battered and torn copies were signed by Stan Lee and Gil Kane in 1995.

MY GRAIL!

Amazing Spider-Man #99, Page 20– The very last page from the very first comic that I collected! 'Nuff Said!

My Amazing Spider-Man Original Art Collection

Andru, Ross

Amazing Spider-Man #131, Page 2

Spider-Man can only watch as HammerHead makes his dramatic entrance at the wedding of Aunt May and Doc Ock! I found this storyline completely silly, but, Ross Andru's art here is superb.

Inks by Giacoia & Hunt

Andru, Ross

Amazing Spider-Man #147, Page 23

Spider-Man battles the Tarantula, on a runaway city bus driven by the Jackal, while the Gwen clone watches! While I was not a fan of the clone storyline, this page certainly has a lot going for it. One other great thing about this page is it's pristine condition.

Andru, Ross

Superman vs Spider-Man - Hero Identification, Spider-Man origin splash

One of my favourite pages, from the first historic Marvel and DC cross-over.

INTERESTING NOTE: Check out that "Austin Watches" billboard, courtesy of Terry Austin, background inker.

Inks by Giordano & Austin

Ditko, Steve

Amazing Spider-Man #34, Page 7

Kraven the Hunter stars on this page, penciled and inked by Spider-Man's co-creator, Steve Ditko. After all these years, I still can't believe I own a Ditko Spider-Man page!

Pencils & Inks by Ditko

Frenz, Ron

Amazing Spider-Man #251, Page 14

As the Hobgoblin's battle van sinks into the river, Spider-Man fights to escape with his life. Klaus Janson is one of my favourite inkers and he doesn't disappoint on this all-action page!

Inks by Janson

Frenz, Ron

Amazing Spider-Man #259, Page 21

After a number of issues wearing his, (then new), black costume, Spider-Man once again dons his traditional Red and Blue outfit and swears to bring the Hobgoblin to justice. There are so many things that I love about this page, including how Ron Frenz managed to ape Steve Ditko's style!

Inks by Rubinstein

Kane, Gil

Amazing Spider-Man #90, Page 13

This is probably my favourite AS-M issue. In addition to the storyline, Gil Kane inked by John Romita is just pure magic and I feel that they hit their artistic peak on this issue! Finally, let's not forget that Doc Ock is the Best.Villian.Ever!

INTERESTING NOTE: In the first panel, there was an entire building, (completely penciled and inked), behind Doc Ock which was painted over with white-out.

Inks by Romita

Kane, Gil

Amazing Spider-Man #99, Page 20

This is it! The very last page to the very first comic that I collected! It also ties into the next issue, the second comic that I collected. A happy ending in both the comic book and my collecting fortune.

Inks by Giacoia

Kane, Gil

Amazing Spider-Man #105, Page 18

Spider-Man battles the latest Spider-Slayer, controlled by JJJ. This page brings back the wonderment of my ten year old self first discovering Spider-Man. It's probably as close as I'll ever get to owning a page from my first issue, #99. The adult in me, appreciates the creative genius of Gil Kane's art.
(Hard to believe that I've enjoyed this page for ten years now!)

INTERESTING NOTE: In the first panel, on the bottom of the remote that JJJ is holding, Gil had penciled in some rather detailed circuitry, only to have the inker ignore it.

Inks by Giacoia

Kane, Gil

Amazing Spider-Man #120, Page 2

This is just a great, fun example, as Spider-Man is in MOTION throughout the entire page! If you've read my description of my AS-M #90 page above, then you know how I feel about the Gil Kane / John Romita art team.

Inks by Romita

John Romita

Amazing Spider-Man #63, Page 11

Classic Spider-Man soap opera courtesy of Stan Lee, as Peter Parker wonders what he would do if Norman Osborns memory returns! I always thought this was a great storyline as it showed why the Vulture was a unique and menacing villain.

John Romita

Amazing Spider-Man #82, Page 7

Electro's recalls his origin and past defeats at the hands of Spider-Man! He also gets a visit from his parole officer, a nice touch by Lee and Romita, adding some depth of character to Electro.

Inks by Mooney

John Romita

Amazing Spider-Man #83, Page 11

Peter saves Gwen from an overturned truck and attaches his spidey tracer to the auto that caused the accident.

Amazing Spider-Man #85, Page 9

Spidey battles the Schemer! The "wise cracking" Spider-Man here makes me smile every time I look at this page.

Inks by Mooney

John Romita

Amazing Spider-Man #88, Pages 19 & 20

Spider-Man fights to save a plane full of hostages from that villain I love to hate, Doctor Octopus! As happy as I am to have two consecutive Doc Ock pages, it's the classic, cliffhanger style "end" page that makes these pages special.

Inks by Mooney

John Romita

Amazing Spider-Man #119, Page 11

This is the only Romita penciled and inked, (except for the backgrounds), interior page that I own, notable for the incredible drawing of the Green Goblin in the last panel.

INTERESTING NOTE: Check out the water tower in the last panel, where the background inker, Tony Motellaro, placed his name.

Inks by Romita

John Romita

Amazing Spider-Man Daily - 1978

Peter decides to go out for a little wall-crawling, to get his act together, and just happens to run into that villain, I love to hate, Doc Ock!

Inks by Romita

John Romita, Jr.

Amazing Spider-Man #247, Page 16

Here's an early John Romita Jr. page inked by his father, John Sr. It's got some action shots of Spidey web-swinging, a sexy shot of the Black Cat, and Peter working in his dark room.

Inks by Romita

John Romita, Jr.

Amazing Spider-Man #250, Page 2

From John Romita Jr's layouts to Klaus Jason's inking, I just love the look of this page! And, Roger Stern, showing why he was such a great writer, here on just the second page, gets the reader caught up on the storyline.

Inks by Janson

John Romita, Jr.

Spider-Man #75, Page 36

Spidey battles the Green Goblin! I love John Jr's art from this period and if not for the lack of word balloons, would have many more pages in my collection.
