*Marvel: By the time of Spider-Man’s 50th issue, ‘new’ artist John Romita had made the series his own, and this special issue was marked with the debut of a new villain, the Kingpin – so long associated with Daredevil, in the post-Miller years, that many people overlook the fact that he originally belonged to Spider-Man’s Rogues’ Gallery! The cover to #50, with Peter’s temporarily abandoning his Spider-Man identity, has become etched in the minds of a generation, endlessly imitated and ‘homaged’, in comics and other media. Our newest copy of ASM #50 is VG-, a cents copy with no pence pricing or overstamp. Largely unimpaired cover scene, but light to moderate corner and edge wear, particularly at the cover’s upper edge, and a tiny corner off the lower right cover corner. This is on sale at £195.
