Spider-Man by Jim Steranko

This illustration has been around since the Bronze Age, I first saw it on the back cover of FOOM magazine, but I believe it may have been originally done for Marvelmania.

Spider-Man by Steranko

Spider-Man by Jim Steranko.  The color job looks very recent, I wish I remembered who did it.  Nuff Said!


  1. You know,I think was posted in a Marvelmania ad,in the late 60's/early 70's.I know,it might have gotten up one of issue of Mediascene later on,with other artist.Wish I had those to look back,but lost allot of my collection a few years ago

  2. It was originally printed in black and white in an issue of Marvelmania. This version was also printed in black and white in a 1970 Supergraphics publication called STERANKO PORTFOLIO ONE. A few years ago Bob Ting took a scan of the image from STERANKO PORTFOLIO ONE and remastered the image using vectoring. The coloring was done by Bob with Steranko providing colouring suggestions.

    1. Thanks for explaining that! I never heard of Steranko Portfolio One. Good to know. Bob Ting did a great job on the coloring.

    2. You can download all of STERANKO PORTFOLIO ONE here:
