SPIDEY SUPER STORIES! 1974 John Romita Sr. Original Cover Art! Medusa Strikes!

Say what ya want about Marvel's 70s SPIDEY SUPER STORIES comic. It not only had a healthy multi-year run, but it also taught tons of younger fans some hearty reading basics, all while fostering an appreciation of Spider-Man, and comics in general! But, the best thing about this enduring educational comic? The fantastic covers by Spidey's main artist, John Romita, Sr.! Dig this one, from 1974 (tho sporting a 1975 cover date), featuring the Webbed Wonder in action with the Inhuman ingenue, Medusa! The action! The composition! The drama! Romita at his finest! More a maniacal Marvelite could demand? Click below to enlarge, frantic one!
