Check out this AWESOME 1978 Spider-Man cover! This great cover was the VERY FIRST Piece of art, and VERY FIRST Spider-Man cover created for an actual book novel! This cover was painted entirely by the great Bob Larkin, and was painted on 14.5 by 20 inch thick board, with an actual painted art image measuring 10.3 by 16.3 inches. Bob Larkin cover paintings are getting increasingly hard to find and very sought after, so don't miss out on this beauty which was his VERY FIRST Spider-Man painting (based off of a drawing by the great John Romita Sr!) A cross-media sensation, Spider-Man has made many leaps and bounds to new formats and new genres. In 1978, after sixteen years, Spidey was already in comics, kids books, and newspaper strips as well having been transferred (with varying degrees of success) into the TV and movie format. Now it was time for a major literary leap. A full-length novel. Could it be done with 176 pages. Surely there was enough material for a talented novelist to create a story which would demonstrate that Spider-Man was a force to be reckoned with, in prose as well as in picture. Under the eye (and guiding hand) of Stan Lee, the task was given to Len Wein and Marv Wolfman, and they did a masterful job on the great story this AMAZING cover was created for! Compare this nice cover art to the published novel in the red link above! ALL pieces of art on our website (including this one) are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payments, and trades are always considered towards "ANY" art on our website! Just send us an email to and we can try to work something out.
