Happy Birthday John. You are a superb human being. Simply the nicest man I’ve ever met: I hope you and the family really enjoy this special day.

Love from Mike and all my brothers

Just thought i'd share this with the group........

Even those out there who feel he wasn't very talented....... He certainly brought us all a lot of great memories in our younger comic reading days! :)

I don't know anyone out there who could claim, with a straight face, that John Romita wasn't talented..but I'm sure that there are some...

Happy Birthday JR, but re: euphemisms ("young") and directed to a former military man...

Excellent artist. Just a shame I will never get a Phantom Stranger of his. 🎂

No one in their right mind would claim that Romita wasn't talented. That's crazy talk. :screwy:

I will always love Ditko's Spidey, but to my mind, Romita's Spider-Man IS Spider-Man. That's what I see in my head when I think of the character. It's the definitive take. 

Happy belated B-day to Mr. Romita!
