Spidey’s greatest artist turns 89!
Every year, I write: “If Spider-Man is my favorite Marvel hero and John Romita Sr. is my favorite Spidey artist, then I suppose John Romita is my favorite Marvel artist of all time.”
And even though Romita — who was born Jan. 24, 1930 — did so much more than Spidey, I will go back to this well again and again for these 13 COVERS birthday salutes. I dig his Spider-Man that much. (I pretty much write that every year now, too.)
Anyway, this time around, I’ve picked kind of an eclectic bunch of covers, focusing largely on Marvel Team-Up. Why? No real reason other than Marvel is bringing the title back in April and it inspired me.
Oh, and that lone, regular Amazing Spider-Man cover? It was my first.
