Chris Chuckry, 43, had no idea how big the comic was going to get when he was approached by Marvel. Comics America owner Joe Krolik says The Amazing Spider-Man issue #583 is extremely popular.
When the comic was first released in January, the first batch sold out in about 10 and a half minutes and lineups went down the block of the Academy Road comic book store.
In total, Marvel produced 5 variations of the cover, Chris coloured them all.
Where am I heading on the way home? Comics America to pick up this bad boy! I haven’t purchase a comic for years – but this one is definitely an exception.
