There's an Andru page on Comiclink at the mo - no Spidey in it but already at $850

Not bad considering no Spidey or A list villain appears:

That's a lot of good readin' there @Get Marwood & I did you ever buy any OA or did you just track it? the ASM #172 makes me want to know what in the world was the matter with 'Liz'!

 

There's a few of mine in the earlier thread posts Mark. I just had to have an Andru original, and ended up with 3. Bought at the right time :)

Liz was preoccupied with the Molten Man as I recall. There's a clue on the cover of 173....

Such a great GG page and one of the few times I considered buying OA.  I think it's from issue 177 but it was likely my introduction to the character's history...and I had only read 136/137 and issue 40 from Bring on the Bad Guys at the time.

Yeah, there are certain frames of art that stay with you.  The Goblins face on this page where he's being impaled by the glider is one of them.

Story telling was so different back then. Scenes of Peter trudging through the streets with all the cares in the world on his shoulders. Simple,  but moody and slightly maudlin. So different to the brash, clever clever smart arse stuff of today.

There's a scene in ASM 153 where the crook catches a bird in his hand and crushes it. That stayed with me. Soppy sod, I was. 

 

Edit - here it is:

That's so cool. Thanks S-V. I really liked these :headbang:

I love realism in my art. Andru was so good at it. It made it real for me as a kid. I truly believed this stuff was happening, in a real place.

I enjoyed making these.  There's a lot more examples, but time got in the way. 

Ross Andru's Amazing Spider-Man was a big part of my youth and these issues will always have a soft spot for me.  I agree, I enjoy my art with more realism than flash.
