My love for the fabulous art of John Romita, Sr. is no secret. Here, I'm presenting some little-seen rarities from this master renderer, from fan sketches and merchandise artwork, to published posters, comics, and covers! Click each to enlarge!
|The above illo appeared inside various 70s Power Records offerings, spotlighting the many |
characters their bombastic book-and-record sets featured, and looks to be inked by joltin' Joe Sinnott!
|Shown above is recent JRSR wrapper art for an X-MEN trading card set!|
|Of course, John drew the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN newspaper comic strip for many years, and here is an original art |
sample from the long-running series! See where this particular slice of spectacular-ness fits into continuity here!
|From my own collection! Gaze above to dig the pencil cover rough (left), for 1976's MARVEL TEAM-UP #48! |
Romita also provided the finished art for the published cover (right)!
|The above (left) image is another cover idea from the pen of JRSR, for 1993's DARKHOLD #5! |
FUN FACT: I provided some of the pencil art inside that very issue!
