This is from the classic story Disaster! , written by the legendary Stan Lee, with artwork by John Romita Sr. In this story, Spidey has lost his memory, and has been convinced by Doctor Octopus that he is a criminal on the same side. So Spidey and Doc Ock team-up.What's particularly noteworthy is that this issue features the introduction and first appearance of Capt. George Stacy, the father of Peter Parker's love, Gwen Stacy. His actual first ever appearances are featured on this sheet, as he is shown on page 7 and then fully introduced by name on page 8.
The sheet measures approximately 10 3/4" by 14", and features some great images of Spidey and Dr. Octopus in action, as well as the lovely Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy, together with Aunt May and Harry Osborn. So the sheet contains 4 total pages (2 on each side). The page has some minor general wear with a small edge chip, but is overall in very good condition and is not cut or stapled. Please note that this is NOT a mass-produced print or lithograph.
It is also not from a reprint, it is an actual sheet from the 1960's. This is an exceptional rare piece of comic production art, that would look great framed, and would be a true key piece in any collection. Please note that this is an authentic piece from the 1960's, not something made for a later reprint or collection book.We have been told there are reprint production art pieces being listed by other sellers that make them seem to be old and from original printings, even though they are not for example, older production art did not have the words on a separate sheet from the images. Those kinds of things were only done much more recently, using computer technology. We advise buyers to be careful, as there are disreputable sellers tricking many people into believing they are purchasing items that are older and more valuable than what they actually are. Some sellers simply do not state their items are from reprints, while others make very long listings and put a tiny mention about reprints buried deep in the listing, and/or use a hard-to-read font color (like yellow) to prevent buyers from seeing this information. Unfortunately, everything else in the listing the title, pictures of the cover of the comic from the 1st printing, etc. This item is a genuine proof from the'60's, not something made for a reprint.
