Spiderman TPB For my teenage nephew

#1 Posted by Donnyuk84 (2 posts) - - Show Bio

Hi this is my first time posting on here. I really enjoy comics and my nephew is just getting interested in them. He really likes spiderman and I wanted to get him a tpb / graphic novel that contains a good story but doesnt necessarily need prior reading to enjoy it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

When I first started getting into comics (when I was 13 or so), I got a copy of Essential Spider-Man, Vol.1. Considering that it has the very first stories, you really can't get a better jumping on point than that. The only downsides are that it's in B&W and the stories can be a little dated, but you'll still get some great stories and artwork for a cheap price.

Marvel Masterwork's Spider-Man is very good as well. I believe there are several.

Spider-man: Birth of Venom and Spider-man: Vengeance of Venom.

I do agree that the Stan Lee story's hold up well but with my own experience as an uncle of 7 kids. Venom is the usually the fan favorite among kids. Especially in his earliest appearances.

Amazon is selling The Amazing Spider-man Omnibus by David Micheline and Todd Mcfarlane for about 60 bucks right now. I have one and it is my most prized comic hard cover next to Scott Snyder's Batman epics. (The Black Mirror and The Court of Owls)

During their run they included just about every Major Spider-man villain at the time. Even the Green Goblin. (Although not the Norman Osborn version.)
