Amazing Spider-Man No. 101 Cover by Kane and Romita

July 26, 2021|In General

How do you top giving Spider-Man four extra arms in a last-page reveal of Amazing Spider-Man No. 100?

You put Spidey up against a brand-new character once again acceptable due to changes in The Comics Code: Morbius the Living Vampire! And for good measure you add The Lizard trapped somewhere between his monstrous persona and his human form of Dr. Curt Connors.

Roy Thomas’ first issue on ASM did not disappoint. Fast-paced and intelligently written, the story suited Gil Kane’s dynamic pencilling style. The cover was also powerful, with John Romita’s slick inking finishing it off.

New colour and packaging by me.
