  1. It's interesting, as you say, especially since his other two contemporaries of the day - McFarlane and Liefeld both have very notable key books as a part of their history. And it's weird in that because Lee is probably still one of the most popular artists of his generation - and one of only two who could take over a book at Marvel or DC right now and we'd see the sales of it immediately go through the roof.
  2. Ditko had changed the original Kirby rendition of what Lee had given him for Spider-man, and it of course became what we would come to know as the definitive Spider-man, and.... as you mention, he also had a hand in changing the Hulk into the character we would come to know with that short 8 issue (1/2 stories) run in Tales to Astonish. Definitely agree: smaller body of work, but worth an honorable mention.
  3. I love this cover. Such great depth of perception, this should be an art teachers example of how to make a drawing come to life. All while being entertaining, colorful, dramatic, fun, etc... how could someone NOT pick this comic up and buy it off the rack???
  4. Here's the cover from #100 used for the UK Spider-man Comics Weekly (#138). It's actually the last 10 pages of the story from #100, with the first 8 pages of Iron Man #1 and the last 8 pages of Thor #165... all in glorious black & white newsprint!
  5. It's not Silver, but I wanted to post here to show it... thought it'd be of some interest! It's the cover from #100 used for the UK Spider-man Comics Weekly (#138). It's actually the last 10 pages of the story from #100, with the first 8 pages of Iron Man #1 and the last 8 pages of Thor #165... all in glorious black & white newsprint!
  6. And I'm still amazed at how inexpensive I see this book sometimes. To me, it's one of the most under rated Spidey books of the Silver Age - great story - great Romita art (with the dark Mooney embellishes) - great cover...
  7. Picked up a couple of Spidey's at a small show today... of course, I've always loved this book...
  8. And the always under appreciated Reggie's.... and I'm big fan of the mysterious George Frese, so I especially like my early Reggie's!
  9. A couple of B&V's... still amazed at how affordable that 1st DeCarlo is...
  10. Some amazing books in here...!!! I just collect to read now, so what I pick up is a bit less impressive, but still good fun...
  11. Maybe the most inexpensive of the first 10 issues, I always loved this story...
  12. Been picking up some low grade Spidey's here and there, thought I'd share... this #7 had a nice big chunk out of the cover, but it was cheap. At this point in my life I buy purely for the reading enjoyment, so...
