HeroClix World Amazing Spider-Man#7 ISSUE 365
(click image to enlarge)

Issue 365 was really the ultimate gimmick at the time. As part of the 30th Anniversary of Spider-Man, four "hologram" covers were commisioned for the current Spider-Man titles at the time (Amazing, Web, Spectacular, and just Spider-Man).

When these babies were released, they sold out fast -- in the aftermarket they were going for $15+ each. Back in 1992, comic book speculation was at an all-time high, which just added gas to the overpriced fire. (side note: I was one of the fools that bought 5 copies of anything with a "#1" on the cover. That's right, I helped cause the 90's comic book crash).

To this day I have no idea what the stories were about in these books, but I can tell you that the hologram covers were really cool (I still have 3 of each in my attic). My understanding is that Marvel actually created real models and laser scanned them to create the hologram.

I have no idea how they did it, but I urge you all to find a copy of this book today -- if only to cut out the hologram and put it on your fridge. I've seen them as cheap as $2 on eBay and it's a real topic starter at the office!

This is just factually wrong. ASM #23, absent hu? No #33. One of the best of all time. I don't mean to just flame you, but you need to learn your history before you act like you do.

Really great use of pictures and comparisons The Le. Thanks for going the extra mile!

To 'keep things clixy' i'm going to say the cover with the pose they copied for the Web of Spiderman Spidermen. Don't know the mumber, don't really care. The brooding half cocooned in webbing pose is cool!
