For the release of Amazing Spiderman #666 (written by Dan Slott, penciled by Stefano Caselli) Marvel gave comic shops the option of placing an image of their choosing on the cover of the Daily Bugle.
My local shop, Jim Hanley's Universe (which is full of awesome, btw), asked me to come up with an image for their variant. After some thinking I came up with the below illo of long time comic enthusiasts and managers of JHU Nick Purpura (on the left) and Ronnie Hill with his darling babe (in the middle) just moments after Spidey has saved the beloved and iconic shop from the evil clutches of evil (alas, Nick got a little scuffed up in the process).
You can swing by (haha) Jim Hanley's Universe (located in midtown Manhattan, across from the Empire State Building as well as in New Dorp, Staten Island) to pick up this special variant today!
Even babies love Spider-Man!
A long box of comics with my illo! Yes!
