I was excited to work on this one, the next in my series of recreations of classic comic covers.  This last summer I was able to see some of the original artwork from this issue at an exhibit in Seattle.  It was pretty amazing to look at how just a few unassuming pages of art would become the global phenomenon that is Spidey.  As much as I love Spidey, he can be a pain to latch hook because of all the webs on his costume.  I like how this turned out, but it his costume, particularly his face, would probably have looked better at a larger size.  Maybe some day I’ll tackle this one again at a larger size, but for now, I’m glad I was able to get to this one to celebrate my favorite super hero.
