Dig These 13 Groovy SPIDER-MAN Cover Re-Creations

Paying homage to the likes of Steve Ditko, John Romita, et al…

I just love stuff like this.

Cartoonist Karl Heitmueller Jr. — best known for his Back Issue feature Prince Street News — has turned out glorious re-creations of 13 fabulous Spider-Man covers, commissioned by a couple of fans.

Dig ’em.
