Spider-Man No More
Comparing the classic scene from Amazing Spider-Man #50
with its recreation in the
comic book adaptation of the Spider-Man 2 feature film
One of the most memorable and classic scenes in the history of the Spider-Man comic book character took place in Amazing Spider-Man #50 (July 1967). This issue, titled "Spider-Man No More!" was written by Stan Lee, pencilled by John Romita, and inked by Mickey Dimeo. The cover itself hints at the events that will take place within the story. Page 8 features the classic splash page in which we see Peter Parker walking away from an alley-way garbage can in which he has discarded his Spider-Man costume.
Much of the Spider-Man 2 feature film (2004; directed by Sam Raimi) was based on this particular issue, and the movie features a scene that attempts to recreate this classic panel as closely as possible. The comic book adaptation of the movie shows this scene as well, in what appears to be a close recreation of the panel from Amazing Spider-Man 50. See: Spider-Man 2: The Official Comic Adaptation, Marvel Entertainment Group: New York City (2004), page 30; written by Roberto Agirre Sacasa; pencilled by Staz Johnson, Ron LIm and Pat Olliffe; inked by Scott Koblish and Rodney Ramos; colored by Chris Sotomayor.
