DescriptionSpider-Man Storyboard Original Art Sequence of 25 (Sony, c. 2002). Peter Parker (portrayed by Tobey Maguire) discovers his new powers in this unbelievable sequence of 25 sheets containing original storyboards from the 2002 Sam Raimi-directed superhero flick Spider-Man. This film is widely credited for redefining the modern superhero genre, as well as the summer blockbuster. These incredible early storyboards for the film were created by celebrated storyboard artist Nikita Knatz (1940-2010). Mr. Knatz was one of the most sought-after production artists in modern cinema with a resume that includes work on over 100 films. His work was used for the production of films and TV shows over the course of 40 years, titles such as Batman Returns, Spider-Man, Lost, Predator, and Le Mans. His prowess can be seen here in these large drawings, showcasing incredible technical skill along with a sharp sense of storytelling, camera, lighting, set design and characterization. These storyboards are rendered in graphite on vellum tracing paper mounted to 11" x 8.5" sheets of bond paper. They show minor handling and edge wear, and all sheets contain punch holes, and there are taped edges. The drawings come with hand-written camera and production notes. The condition overall is Very Good.
