John Romita’s iconic work on Marvel’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man gets the Artist Edition treatment from IDW Publishing this Wednesday with the release of John Romita’s The Amazing Spider-Man Artisan Edition. Check out a preview here…
Jazzy John Romita was for many the definitive artist on the Amazing Spider-Man. His sleek line work brought the web-slinger to life for a generation of fans. This volume collects issues 67, 68, 69, 71, 75, and 84 in their entirety. Additionally there is a beautiful gallery section of Romita extras.
Like all of IDW’s award-winning Artist Edition-style books, each page has been painstakingly scanned from the original art to ensure the finest possible reproduction, mimicking the experience of seeing Romita’s hand-drawn pages—it’s the next best thing to owning the art! While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique.
John Romita’s The Amazing Spider-Man Artisan Edition is out on Wednesday, July 14th.
