Spider-Ads # 2


This is a classic ad printed in Marvel Comics showing off the Atari 2600 video game. I played the heck out of this when I was a kid. The red dot was Spidey, the green was the Goblin. This ad played a big part in making me ask for it during the Christmas of 1982. I think this is John Romita art.

    Back in my day.... Love this stuff. Hysterical commercial, I don't remember that one bit. As for the artwork, I could see it being Sal and JR SR or even JR SR and Frank Giacoia doing the inks... Good stuff.

    I loved that game soooooo much. I actually whistle the little bit of music that played before the level started all the time. I'd love to find a way to play it again!!!

    Yeah I'm calling Romita Sr. too. Not as readily obvious as it usually is, but in the end it could be not other.
