Marvel and Mirthful Marie's Molten Man! Spider-Man Original Comic Cover Art!

Zap! Here is the unforgettable cover for 1970's MARVEL TALES #28! Dig that magnificent Marie Severin (with Bill Everett) cover art, depicting a stymied Spidey caught by the malicious Molten Man! MARVEL TALES was the comic firm's Spider-Man reprint book, taking full advantage of the growing popularity of the still-new Web-Spinner! Fevered fans got to see the original comics when they were published, and sometimes got exciting new cover art when the reprints of those comics surfaced, around five years later! Colossal comics artists like Gil Kane, John Romita, Sr., and mirthful Marie Severin thrilled fans with their all-new takes on familiar cover scenes and stories!

Thanks to the "Marvel Comics: The Untold Story" site for the above awesome artwork!

BONUS! Click below to see a magnificent Marie sketch, done as a (obviously unused) cover design for the above captivating comic!
