*Marvel: What’s Old is our feature where we highlight stuff from our catalogue that you may have missed. This week, one of the most iconic covers of the Ditko run on Amazing Spider-Man, as the Molten Man debuts in Amazing Spider-Man #28. This was the second issue of Spidey I ever read, and the black cover, with just the red lines of Spidey’s costume shown, plus the gleaming Molten Man with his Ditko leer is a real stand-out cover image. The black background makes this a really tough comic to find in high grade, and our mid-grade example here attests to that. A pence printed copy with spine and edge wear, white spine ticks showing up quite markedly, and some colour-breaking creasing at the base of the spine, with a small cover nick on the right edge. Nice off-white pages though, good cover colour and some gloss, decent firm staples.
