My Marvel Stock
John Romita did this drawing for the MARVEL COMICS quarterly report for 1991. He did a lot of this type of work back then. Drawing a likeness for an executives birthday card or drawing Spidey for a slurpee cup or something. The initial offering for Marvel stock did not get get much respect on Wall Street, but there were those who knew better. I bought 20 shares of stock in 1991 and it split maybe 3 times. That was very cool! When Disney bought the House of Ideas earlier this month, I knew that now was a good time to sell. Here's a toast to the marriage of Marvel and Disney!
