MARVEL TALES SPIDEY COVER GALLERY - PART THREE...
This feeling is no doubt compounded by the fact that my comics are in the same condition as when I first obtained them; if they were well-thumbed, dog-eared and with covers hanging off the staples - had an appearance of age in other words - then perhaps I'd view them in their proper context, time-wise. However, because most of my comics appear to be brand-new, that's a difficult thing to do. The only comics I have that look their age are ones that were in that condition when I purchased them - usually back issues from long, long ago.
Anyway, that's enough philosophical profundity for today - let's get down to the business at hand. Which is, you'll be glad to hear, appreciating the next six issues of early SPIDER-MAN covers by STEVE DITKO, as re-presented in MARVEL TALES back in the 1980s. If you're not lucky enough (or rich enough) to have the original first printings of these stories, then these reprint mags are the next best thing. So, sit back, cup of tea in hand, and simply salivate at these exquisite pictorial presentations of your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man at his very best.
