Check out this very nice 1970 Amazing Spider-Man cover prelim which was penciled and inked by the great Gil Kane, from the EVER CLASSIC Spidey story titled: "--And Now, the Goblin!?" This nice DETAILED cover prelim is drawn on 11 by 17 inch drawing paper, featuring the first of three consecutive issues where Stan Lee chose to go against the Comics Code Authority and depict the negative impact of drugs on the youth of the time. This cover shows Spider-Man leaving the scene after he saves a stoned black teenager from falling to his death from a skyscraper after thinking he could fly. The story would go on to reveal that Peter (Spider-Man) Parker's best friend, Harry Osborn (who was also the son of the Green Goblin) had begun abusing pills. Lee's willingness to take a stand against the out-of-touch Code, which had been established in 1954, led to many other changes, eventually opening the door for the more adult comic book market we have today. Just a CLASSIC, SIGNED "AMAZING SPIDER-MAN" Cover prelim to own, without paying a published ASM cover price, while still showing off Gil Kane's incredible, pure, untouched pencils AND INKS, just before he created the published cover for publication! Compare this nice 1970 Spider-Man cover to the published comic book in the red link above!
