I remember stitching a few mylites together to fit mine in.

I recently came across this a  "spiritual sequel" don't blame me that's what Wiki calls this edition. I never found this as good plus it came out as both the larger treasury and a smaller novel sized copy. The artwork and reading needed a magnifying glass for the novel size.

I ended up using an A3 artist sleeve which is like a polybag. Look at that artwork beautiful.

Thanks for posting those Marwood.  I had read both.  

Not sure there is a better Andru comic than that Super-Man vs Spider-Man.

I never bought that one off the shelf and cursed myself for years until I finally ordered it through the mail.

 

 

I've still not read it... one day I'll remember to add it to an order from somewhere!

I love the cover to ASM 130 by the great John Romita, but I wonder what he thought when he was asked to pencil it? 

"Wait, Hammerhead is crashing into a Spider-Mobile?  What the heck is a Spider-Mobile???"

Speaking of the Spider-Mobile, loved the detail Ross put into his depiction of the Pier A Harbor House (Fire Department building in the day) from ASM 141.   As those that remember the story line, poor Spidey drives that sucker right off the end of the pier and into oblivion, never to be seen again.  Well, unless your name is the Tinkerer, that is.

Here's another single panel from ASM 139 where Ross went the extra mile.  Look at the building on the right behind the Washington Square Arch compared to the real background buildings.
