This takes me back! Bought it when I was a kid and still have it rolled up in a tube. I always liked the Romita webs & the McFarlane spider combination. Pink was juuust going out of date for men's shirts at the time. It was in style then. Give it 10-20 yrs., it will be in style again by then. This brings back memories. Thanks for posting this.
Okay Joe, I was showing this to my girlfriend, telling her that this was the first Spidey poster I ever bought and she swears that it looks like Patrick Swayze. I think she's crazy. Did you model Pete after anyone in particular?
Yeah, I could stare at this for a long time Mostly because spidey looks almost real, secondly because the theme of a sudden quick change is so familiar, fun and works so well... and thirdly because a man who looks like that is pretty damn hard to ignore
Stands well in holding its own side by side with any pic of ol' Supes tearing his shirt open. It's just an iconic theme, the whole sudden change thing. Don't know why it works so very well, it simply does.
