In 1990, there was no bigger star in the comic book world than Todd McFarlane, who was coming off an awesome run on Amazing Spider-Man that gave the character a bold new look. One of his trademarks was Spider-Man's intricate, crisply detailed webbing. As impressive as that was on the printed page, it's even more so with the original art in your hands! Todd McFarlane's Spider-Man #3 Cover right here is from the ever classic 5 part "Torment" storyline, where Spider-Man and the Lizard's savage battle rages across the rooftops and through the back alleys of New York City. Finally, on the last page of this issue, Spidey witnesses the return of the fearsome foe he thought dead -- Kraven the Hunter! This GREAT 3rd issue cover depicts our favorite wall-crawler beginning to doubt his own sanity. The LOGO is backwards on this cover, as well as the wording above it. We see a giant background of THE LIZARD'S face with claws dripping blood all over the full figure of Spiderman.... And how can we ever forget the classic "McFarlane" SPIDER which graced EVERY Spider-Man cover Todd McFarlane ever drew (sometimes the spider was hidden like a "WHERE'S WALDO" picture, and other times the spider is easy to spot, like the very large spider hanging down in the lower middle-left of this great cover! Without reading the story, you would never know that the cool spotted cloth behind Spider-Man on this great cover is quite symbolic! Is it representing Calypso? Or are these spots representing the coming of...KRAVEN THE HUNTER! As Most people know...The original cover artwork to SPIDER-MAN #1 sold at auction for 358 thousand dollars in the summer of 2012! This great cover with a nice frontal full body image of Spider-Man, drawn entirely by the great Todd McFarlane can be had for over $300,000 LESS than that great cover! :)---- As an extra bonus... The lower left UPC box had tape covering a beautiful super detailed face shot of the evil "CALYPSO" which has since been removed to show this beautifully detailed image you see now! Don't pass up this VERY historic Todd McFarlane SPIDEY Cover if you can help it! An original "COVER" from This VERY first "TORMENT" storyline will be IMPOSSIBLE to own in the near future, as all of the others are in PERMANENT COLLECTIONS! This 3rd Spidey cover will look GREAT framed up on your wall! Compare this nice cover art to the published comic book in the red link above! ALL HIGH end pieces of art, including this one, are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payment plan options, and trades are always considered towards this and "ANY" art on our website!
