Really one story is all you need 0

I worked in a comic shop that had this on it's back wall. On a day I was on my own I read the issue, sure I had read reprints of the Spiderman story, yet I had never seen the other stories, and I had to contend with two realities. one was that the owner was going to take it and put it into a safety deposit box. He only wanted it on the wall for a little while, so he could get the word out he had the issue. This was before the internet. The other was, I will never get a chance to read a comic th...

Spider-Man! 0

Conceived long before his debut, Spider-Man was Marvel’s last ditch hope at somehow reviving the flailing Amazing Fantasy series, switching up a ton of things, the least of which certainly not Spider-Man and Peter Parker himself. It was a risk that a few people outside of Lee and Ditko’s office had hope for, yet, somehow miraculously, the public put their hatred of spiders to the back of their minds and Spider-Man was an instant hit.Like Stan has gone over a thousand times already however, most ...

The Origin of Spider-Man 0

Please check my youtube at http://www.youtube.com/user/funnymanfish?feature=mhee (well post review shortly)"Spider-Man"The Good-This starts the legend, the beginning, the amazing Spider-Man. Namely my favorite hero, Spider-Man is always creative and fun. This is no exception. This also introduces what makes Spider-Man the best hero EVER. Not all the action and fighting (that's pretty cool though) But his personal problems are always the reason that the average comic fan will say their fave marve...

Historical Sigificance vs. Storytelling Quality 0

Part of CV's Top 100 Spider-Man Universe Stories - reviewed!This is it. One of the most prized comics in comic book history. The comic that introduced Spider-Man to the world. An original of this baby is worth more than the wealth of some entire nations.Amazing Fantasy ran for fourteen issues as Amazing Adult Fantasy before there was an attempt to retool it to boost sales. 'Adult' was removed from the title, stories were reduced from six per issue to five, and a new costumed character, Spider-Ma...
