This was a poster inserted in a random comic back during the 80's. I'm not sure which comic it came from, but I still have it to this day and it's one of my favourite Spider-Man images. Charles Vess is the artist credited to it and he was the cover artist for several Spidey comics around that time frame, most notably, Web of Spider-Man #1 and Amazing Spider-Man #261 being my favourites from him. Vess has done work on covers for Amazing Spider-Man, handled the art on the OGN Spider-Man: Spirits of the Earth and, arguably his most popular work, the art for Sandman #19, which you'll likely know as the critically acclaimed and award winning "A Midsummer Night's Dream" issue. Vess also handled the art for Neil Gaiman's Stardust.
