392: Face It, Tiger - A Romita Retrospective

This week we celebrate the life, career, and amazing legacy John Romita, Sr! From his youth growing up during the golden-age comics boom, to becoming perhaps one of the first fans-turned-pros as he cut his teeth as a comic-book artist during the tumultuous ‘50s at the pre-Marvel Timely and Atlas, before hopping to DC as a top-tier romance-comic penciller, into the silver age at Marvel where he contributed to early Avengers and Daredevil, before he was hand-picked by Stan Lee to take over The Amazing Spider-Man — where he redefined one of the most iconic characters of all time and set the artistic and design standard that changed and evolved Spidey, Marvel, and comics as a whole forever. Thanks for everything, “Jazzy” John!
