Monster Monday: Original Art for Giant-Size Spider-Man #5!

What does a terrifying Monday really need?  More Man-Thing!  Surely all Giant-Size fans remember this title...

Giant-Size Spider-Man #5 was notable for several reasons.  It was the first meeting between Spidey and Man-Thing, but it was also the last issue featuring an all-original story.  There was a sixth and final issue but it featured reprint material.  The Giant-Sizers were doomed to extinction.

But at least Gil Kane's cover was pretty nifty, featuring Spidey caught in-between Manny and the Lizard.  Once again a lot of stuff to draw with the only 2/3 of the space available.  Nuff Said!
