STRIP LOTS

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN by Stan Lee and John Romita
390 dailies (includes doubles). The lot runs the first year (312 strips from 1977) and the first part of year two (78 from 1978). These are the first Spider-Man dailies from between January 3, 1977 (first strip) to April 1, 1978 with gorgeous John Romita artwork.

Villains appearing are Dr. Doom, Dr. Octopus, The Rattler (1st appearance), The Kingpin, Kraven, Mysterio, and you get Spider-Man's origin story. Most strips were cut with big borders and 99% have dated headers, a few may be trimmed tight. With the possible exception of a handful, all have the left side "Spider-Man" title bar present. These strips have been stored away for decades, so quality is high. All lay flat with no rolling. No yellowing or tanning. A few may have a minor tear or a chip out of a corner, but overall it's an outstanding collection of seldom offered early daily strips. See sample daily  $450
