Spider-Man! 1979 Bob Larkin Painted Original Cover Art! Marvel Comics!

Incredible! Here is the original painted art, by Bob Larkin, for the cover to the 1979 SPIDER-MAN Fireside book! The book was part of a sensational series of hard-cover tomes, each collecting 4 or 5 major comics stories from Spidey, Hulk, Captain America, and the Fantastic Four! What made them especially memorable, tho, were the fabulously realistic painted art that fronted each volume! Bob had already painted a great deal of cover art for the Marvel Novel Series, Marvel magazine line, and the other similar comics collections from the Fireside folks, so fans were primed for more art from this master!
