KIRBY MARVELMANIA #5 COVER (ONLY KNOWN KIRBY SILVER AGE SPIDER-MAN COVER!) 1960s
MARVELMANIA #5 COVER ART (1960s). Check out this INCREDIBLY HISTORIC SILVER AGE MARVEL COVER which was penciled by the great JACK KIRBY! This is believed to be the "ONLY" EXISTING SILVER AGE SPIDER-MAN COVER that Jack Kirby EVER DREW! Many people forget that Jack Kirby was the actual penciler for Spider-Man's first 2 covers ever! AMAZING FANTASY #15 as well as AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1! Jack Kirby also drew the Covers to Fantastic Four Annual #1 and Strange Tales Annual #2 as well as Amazing Spider-Man #10. All of these covers do not exist! This great piece here was drawn for the ever classic MARVELMANIA #5. This was drawn in the late 1960s by Jack Kirby, and published right before Jack Kirby left Marvel for DC after his differences with STAN LEE!
This very cool, very KIRBY-ISH rendition of Spider-Man (without Spider on chest) has all of the great Jack Kirby elements.... With incredible machinery all over the place as Spider-Man uses his webbing to hold onto the side of a building in New York City as he punches a big alien in the face! We can also see a SANDMAN looking guy talking below the battle on a giant walkie-talkie This INCREDIBLY historic JACK KIRBY SILVER AGE SPIDER-MAN cover was published as a fully penciled piece (As you can see in the red link above) and was inked later.
