Poor Peter Parker...

One Moment in Time required several sequences that not only referenced earlier issues of Amazing Spider-Man, but overlapped them, almost line for line. The effect we had hoped for—a clean and clear transition between old and new art—wasn't completely successful. My art was not enough of a contrast with Paul Ryan's pencils and Vince Colletta's inks, especially with updated coloring.

On this page, we took the story in a different direction in the final panel, which required an original composition, not to mention a new shot of the Brooklyn Bridge. As I often do, I leaned on Google's 3D warehouse to find an appropriate model.
