Approx 11x17 inches

Inspired of course, by this classic cover…

All I can really think to say is 'Spectacular'.  Nice classic look to this one, JB.

Would make a good poster or cover to a Sinister Six TPB.

The villains look great. I get a very Ditko vibe from Spider-Man and that's always a good thing.

Edit: I hadn't seen the original cover when I started my reply.

The fluidity and movement in that piece is marvelous -- I'd swear I just saw Doc Ock's tentacle smash into the dirt and Sandman's arms shift!

No disrespect to Ditko, but this is an improvement over the original.

It's Grrrrreat!  What a treat.  A favorite cover re-interpreted.

Now, God-DAMN-it!  That, old or new, is EXACTLY what's missing from today's comics - a well-drawn cover that actually gives a scene from within!  The Big Two should try it every once in a while.

That Spidey figure is pure Ditko.

I don't know if you've ever drawn him with the black/ blue so open without any large blacks before.

I really like the touch with the webbing on his left leg/ foot. And your sig getting covered by the sand.

JB's rendition of the Sinister six is awesome.

And I loved Doctor Octopus' new look in CHAPTER ONE and ASM, but this classic Ock is in my opinion the best Otto Octavius JB has ever drawn!

holey moley...AWESOME!

I have an affinty for that comic.

The summer before 7th grade, I fell and broke my foot.

A good friend of my parents knew I was into comics and he gave me an "old box of comics from the attic." It contained about 100 Superman/Superboy books from the 1960s. All in pretty wretched shape.

Somehow, sitting in there in really good shape were (1960's) Silver Surfer #1, X-men #9 and Amazing Spiderman Annual #1.

It was like a gold mine!  I read them, and then later sold them to a local comic shop. This was the days before the internet. I think I got about $100 in trade for all 3 books.

Must have been a "DC" family.

JB, why the lack of blacks in Spider-Man's costume?

My once favourite character battling my favourite foes of his?

I am insanely jealous of the person who gets to put this up on the wall. It's BEAUTIFUL!!!

WOW. Gorgeous.

Spider-Man is incredibly Ditko-esque, as well!

Absolutely fantastic - true to the original in spirit but surpasses it entirely in detail and sense of action!

Love it, can't tell what's going on with his left foot (in either version so I guess it matches) but who cares. Love Doc Ock's tentacle in the upper left hand corner.
