Spider-Man Art Sells for Big Bucks

If you’re a Spider-Man fan like I am you have to be familiar with John Romita Sr’s iconic splash page from Amazing Spider-Man #50 entitled “Spider-Man No More!”.  This artwork from 1967 was recently put up for auction and raked in the cash selling for $88,500.00.  I can tell you that if I had that kind of cash I would have ponied up for this artwork.

This same scene was replicated in the movie Spider-Man 2 and in various cartoon forms.  Its a scene that has really stuck with Spider-Man history.  If you’re not familiar with this scene there’s a picture below.  I’m incredibly jealous of the new owner of this piece!
