Knowledge Waits:  Rejected Spider-Man Covers

This is the latest in a feature where I just share some bit of comic book history that interests me. Here is a collection of all of the installments in the feature so far.

Today we take a look at some rejected Spider-Man covers.

Enjoy!

Probably the most famous rejected Spider-Man cover of all-time is Steve Ditko’s original cover for Spider-Man’s first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15…

The Ditko cover eventually became a variant cover for Amazing Spider-Man #700, and is a very valuable modern comic still.

Steve Ditko’s greatest creation, Fancy Dan, debuted on this rejected cover for Amazing Spider-Man #10…

The always helpful Nick Caputo has a cool rejected cover for Amazing Spider-Man #35, where Jack Kirby had to redraw Ditko’s Spider-Man so that we weren’t seeing Spidey’s butt on the cover…

Clearly, Marvel decided not to highlight the drug use in Amazing Spider-man #97 as much as Gil Kane thought they were going to with his original cover…

Here’s John Romita’s published cover…

Black Cat’s debut in Amazing Spider-Man #194 had this rejected cover by Keith Pollard and Bob McLeod…

Al Milgrom drew the cover that got published…

Tony Salmons shared an unused cover for Web of Spider-Man Annual #1 in this great interview with Michael Fiffe

Charles Vess drew the cover that got published…

Here’s Bob Layton’s original cover for Amazing Spider-Man #262…

and here’s the photo cover they published…

Here, though, it was unlikely that the Layton cover was REJECTED, so much as it was the springboard for the photo cover idea
