Photo cover to Spider-Woman #50, shot behind Bob Camp’s loft on 37th Street by Eliot R. Brown. Painted enhancements by Bob Larkin.
Mike Carlin recalls: "The Scarecrow was Mark Gruenwald. I was in front of him as The Needle (the guy with the needle). Werewolf By Night was colorist Bob Sharen. The guy hanging off the fire escape is Spongebob animator Vincent Waller. The Moth Lady was Mark G’s wife Belinda. Tigra was Annie Nocenti her own bad self. Brian Postman is the Hangman, though ya can barely see him. Not sure who played The Shroud—Ralph Macchio? White-haired guy in white is letterer Jack Morelli. And Green Hoodie guy MIGHT be Ren & Stimpy animator Bob Camp. Lynn Luckman was a secretary from the business-side of Marvel—and she looked awesome in the suit! In fact she’s the only character painter Bob Larkin didn’t have to "enhance" with costume-lines and such! Lotsa fun here!"
