Genius Covers: The Amazing Spider-Man #247

So we are going to go from "Cover of the Week" to "Genius Covers" so I don't feel guilty about doing more than one of these a week. Today we have The Amazing Spider-Man #247 from December 1983. This a semi-unique cover for Spider-Man in that he is not actuallyfeatured on the cover, just his shadow is used instead.

This issue features both John Romita Sr. and Jr. on the artwork. I'm not too familiar with artist jargon but J.R. Jr. does the "breakdowns" J.R. Sr. does the "finishes."

As well as reminding me of the great shows Monchhichis [you don't see a lot of back-to-back "h"s in words, do you?] and the ultimate product placement cartoon, Rubik: The Amazing Cube, be sure to watch out for Menudo popping up now and again!
