More Spidey cover commissions, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #72 and #130... I finished these two pieces shortly before the original artist, the great John Romita (Sr.) passed away on June 12 at the age of 93. If you ask me, Romita's name needs to be spoken in the same breath as Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko as one of the architects of Marvel Comics.

Rather than do a different post for each of these (especially since some of them are new versions of pieces I've already done), here's a quick dump of some new stuff (most of this slated for an as-yet scheduled show with some friends)....

This installment of PSN was really fun to do, and it's hard to figure out comic book / strip characters who WEREN'T turned into a superhero at least for one story or gag (and some of these indeed have been, notably the Harvey girls).
A few of these are "inside fanboy" gags ("Super Slam" is Slam Bradley, a detective created by Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, so he looks just like their far more famous creation). The Phantom Stranger (a character I love) bit is a nod to a brief period in the 1960s when Marvel Comics gave Doctor Strange a more superhero-ey costume.
Next issue: A tribute to Neal Adams. This one was personal. Stay tuned.

More Spider-Man cover recreations, this time tackling AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #9 after Steve Ditko and #121 after John Romita. The cover of #9 was really text heavy, so I adjusted the main image to take up more space and altered some of the text, omitting one blurb and moving other lettering around.

Anyway, this is another one of those strips where most of the gags are for the longbox set, but thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you can now make jokes about Ant-Man! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comments, I'll do my best to explain why all of this is COMEDY GOLD!
I've posted a few of the elements from this strip separately below to give more detail. See, Ms. Marvel's belly cutout is a Christmas tree! Get it?
