Rest in peace, John Romita


Greg Pak's tattered copy of the Marvel Treasury Edition: The Spectacular Spider-Man comic book from 1974 with a Spider-Man cover by John Romita.

Rest in peace, John Romita.

This 1974 oversized Marvel Treasury Edition: The Spectacular Spider-Man was one of my first comic books ever, and that cover still thrills me. Such clean, fluid, dynamic lines. Feels so real, and pops at the same time. An absolutely foundational comic book legend.

Marvel has posted a statement and tribute here.
