KID'S KLASSIC KOMIC KOVERS - THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700...
Originally drawn by STEVE DITKO for the cover of SPIDER-
MAN's debut issue, AMAZING FANTASY #15 (but rejected by
STAN LEE in favour of one by JACK KIRBY), this illo eventually
fulfilled its destiny as a front cover (even if only as a variant) on the
final ish of Spidey's own mag. Ditko definitely drew his version first,
because the speech balloons and cover blurb were photostatted,
then pasted down on Kirby's incarnation of the cover.
Oh no, did it again. Already featured this cover in this series,
then forgot I'd done so. The old memory is failing me over and
over again lately - I'd better start keeping a scorecard.
