Le voici. Iconique au possible, je suis conquis (oh surprise)
Je trouve très intéressant d'observer la fidelité de Scott Hanna, sur le tisseur, mais surtout les jeux, assez inhabituels pour lui, de textures sur le décor
On observe même par endroits des sortes d'hommage à l'approche du géant Al Williamson (le sol du toit de l'immeuble en bas à gauche), du pinceau sec, des hachures...
C'est la deuxième fois que JRjrt fait la couv (et intérieur) d'un Spidey 1
Quelques pages previews circulent sur le net, je n'en mets là que 2, dont je dispose du crayonné, pour le plaisir de la comparaison (n'hésitez pas à ouvrir en clic droit/ nlle fenêtre, et à zoomer, le crayonné est plus poussé qu'il n'y parait mais les contrastes sont légers sur mes scans)
Ever since my father told my brother and me that Spider Man/ Peter Parker lived close to our home, we were hooked! We talked Spider Man on long drives to family get togethers, and it was if we had an extra family member!As luck would have it, my brother Vic had the brains, went in another direction, and I had a little bit of art in me. As luck would also have it, I was able to watch the greatest Spider Man artist, my father, John, work with the greatest Spider Man writer, Stan Lee, on the greatest character of all time .As luck would also have it, to avoid a long drawn out explanation, after joining the comic book universe, I was given a chance to work on this great character, the Amazing Spider Man. I was terrified! How do I follow my father??? How do I follow any of the previous Spidey artists??I have no idea, but I stuck it out and got lucky. The subsequent runs were much more fun than terrifying, and became more and more fun. There was one run that was incredibly fun, but also important to me. The 9/11 issue may well be with me for as long as I live. IOne commonality with all the runs, was working with the brilliant writers, and artists….. again, luck!!To take being lucky to another level, is that Marvel has allowed me to get back to work on this amazing character, and work with another brilliant writer, Zeb Wells! The stories are stunning and I am reading the scripts with a grin and wonderment…..then wondering how the heck to do them justice!!Well, fortunately, I have a close friend and brilliant artist to help me do that. Scott Hanna and I have worked on this character before and Scott is still a brilliant artist who will continue to be brilliant, lucky for me and anyone who looks at the art. Adding to Scott and myself is the third artist, the color artist, Marcio Menyz. It’s difficult describe how wonderful his work is, so to save space and everyone’s patience, I’ll let his work speak for itself! It’s stunning!!The editorial team beginning with Nick Lowe, adding in Lindsay Cohick, and Kaeden McGahey, make the work process smoother . Judging by the scope of Zeb’s stories, I can use all the help I can get!One commonality here, is how lucky I am to be back working on my “other” brother, Spider Man, and to be back with my professional “family “, Marvel. Thanks folks, I’ll work hard to make you proud!Salute and God Bless,Johnny Romita jr
