I’m sorry for the hiatus! I’ll be devoting a lot more time to posting these great old ads in the weeks and months to come. Here are some to tide you over!
Another page from the very first Spider-man story, from AMAZING FANTASY #15. Art by Steve Ditko.
On my massive scan, you can make out a few things:
In panel one, the word OVER wasn’t originally bolded—that was done as a correction.
in panel three, the first balloon had to be reworked and relettered to make enough space for the second balloon.
In panel 5, there’s a handwritten note from Stan to Ditko:
STEVE - MAKE THIS A GLOOMY BACK ALLEY SO NO ONE CAN SEE HIM!
The originals to this story now reside with the Library of Congress.
