@ ELgUaSoN-
That's Thor #448, when Eric Masterson was Thor.

The truth?? Maybe the cover to Amazing Spider-Man #23, but not this...

The cover sucks...Too cartoony. Always was. Romita Sr.'s art belonged in the Sunday funnies...Apartment 3-G or Steve Canyon or something.

I never got over Ditko's premature departure. The book was never the same.

Wally Wood on Daredevil, Ditko on Spidey and Dr. Strange..The King on the F.F., Thor and Cap...Even Don Heck was cool enough on The Avengers and Iron Man...

Ahhh...Those were the days.
