SPIDER-MAN SPECIAL #6! The 1969 Color Comp! John Romita Sr.! Sinister Six!

You've seen the original art for this pulse-pounding cover, but here, below, is the incredible color comp for this riotous 1969 action scene! Created by John Romita Sr., this artwork simply has it all! Six of Spidey's main foes (indeed, this issue reprints the original "Sinister Six" storyline from five years earlier), action, drama, and terrific art! Looks as if this was used not only as color direction for the engraver, but also a rough sketch for planing the b/w art in general! Even JRSR's roughs are mind-blowing! Click to enlarge!
