Kinda looks like Pete Ross killed Uncle Ben. Now there's a cross-over. (gotta luv the early webbed pits)

Yeah, the blond hair and freckles definitely evoke Clark Kent's boyhood pal from Smallville. Give the thief red hair, and he'd look a little like Walter Kovaks, a.k.a. Rorschach from Watchmen.


Or Mr. Action - Jimmy Olsen

Spidey's costume was supposed to be red and BLACK when it was first created with the blue parts as highlights on the costume but it just didn't turn out that way. I think it turned out to be easier or a mistake by the coloring at the printer. There was some reason that I cannot recall for it becoming red and blue.

I guess those two-way lenses on his mask were really cheap and later on he was able to get a better grade of lens....

Yeah, the eye-dots were the only way without taking off his mask in front of the killer of showing shock.


Another problem with that particular drawing (and that would happen every now and then in the early issues) is that the webbing pattern on Spidey's mask is going on the wrong direction. On top of that, in the original drawing, the shadow of the nose is very visible (something very few artists usually do on Spider-man) so the overall effect -to me at least-is that it looks as a different character that sort of looks like Spider-man, or some sort of foreign knock-off...
