The Goblin Remembers!

Ok, due to the requests of hundreds (from Sam Hundreds, the kid down the street), I'm back with more of my old artwork. This one's a doozy.

I was so into "re-creating" comic covers as a kid, so here's one from around 1974. Marvel was bringing back the Green Golbin in the comics then, in the guise of Harry Osborn, and this is my entrant into that little fun scene.

I love how I tried to introduce some new Goblin "inventions!" Looks like Spidey is trying to bust thru some sorta bag or force field Gobby is using....

I THINK that's a chair that's getting roughed up in the battle. They don't make 'em like they usta...Not much on backgrounds then. C'mon. Backgrounds were boooo-ring!

Again, meticulous attention to cover detail, such as logo and little corner box icon, which here looks like a tiny Spider-Man mite peeking in over the thought balloon! Heh.

So much for me trying to hide my signature in the art, ala John Romita Sr! VERY subtle!

Spidey's thought balloon here is priceless ... I think he was knocking back some early 60's Superman comics and channeling the cover dialogue exchanges.

"I'll never get him with all his new inventions!"
