PART TWO OF SPIDER-MAN COMICS WEEKLY COVER GALLERY...


Images copyright MARVEL COMICS

Another JIM STARLIN cover starts off the second part of our look at SPIDER-MAN COMICS WEEKLY from the year 1973.  Unfortunately, SMCW wasn't quite so lavish as its sister title had been in its early issues when it came to pin-ups and bonus pages, but by this time neither was MWOM.  Still, I've culled the best examples of titanic treats within the magnificent mag's wondrous interiors to bestow upon all you rabid readers of MIGHTY MARVEL MAGIC!

Everything old is new again, so pamper your peepers with the array of awesome images presented in this pulsating post.  And keep a look-out for Part Three

Kid,

It's great to see these covers and pin-ups. The cover looks to be inked by Mike Esposito and the Spider-Man-Arachnia pin-up may be Starlin-Milgrom.

Incidentally, the next issue of Back Issue will focus on Marvel's British weeklies and feature an interview with Starlin discussing his cover art. That should be interesting, since the large art book on Starlin had neither cover repros or a mention of his work for the Weeklies.

Thanks for reminding me about the next issue of Back Issue, Nick. I'll do my best to pick up a copy in my local comics shop.

As for the Spidey Science page - I was thinking Starlin/Milgrom myself.

The Mysterio cover is one of my all-time favourites!

It's a belter, sure enough. You got your computer fixed yet, Dougie?
