The Night Gwen Stacy Died Cover Art Expected To Go For Over Two Hundred Thousand

The cover artwork to Amazing Spider-Man #121 by John Romita Sr from 1973 is up for auction in nine days time from Heritage Auctions and is expected to bring in over $200,000.

The title of the story, The Night Gwen Stacy Died was only revealed at the end.

A very controversial comi at the time, it is considered by some as the day with which comic books “lost their innocence.” Although, you know, Zap #1 came out a few years before that…

So, anyone got some spare change? I’m sure if we all cobble together we could raise enough… they do it on Kickstarter all the time.
