Another of my 60's Marvel homages, this time John Romita Sr.'s SPIDER-MAN #50 cover. The biggest compliment came from Romita, himself, who kept sending people over to my booth to see it!

My folks had a huge stash of old comics from the 60s and 70s (Marvel for my mom, DC and EC for my dad) and I used to pull out a couple each night before I went to bed. I remember this one standing out to me even then... For it to stick in the memory of a ten year old like that, you know it's something special.

I like the way that you dropped Spidey's shoulders a little more in this version. It's subtle but pushes the idea that both sides of the character are giving up.

This comic is exactly the reason I love Marvel, and your illustration is excellent. I really love the lighting and coloring you did for this.

I am so jealous! John Romita Sr.! My God, how I'd love to meet that guy!

Excellent, dude. You captured everything that was great about the original and heightened it. It's great to hear that John Romita himself dug it too.

Yeah, it can be a bit overwhelming on here at times, what with so many features and the never ending avalanche of distracting eye candy! It's great seeing more pros here, and thanks for inspiring with your work, Mr. Jusko!

Keep it goin'!
