About this deal

Pacing can be slow in some stories, the dialogue and interactions obviously feel dated, Betty Brant is terminally irritating (and frankly looks weird most of the time) and her 'relationship' with Peter feels very underbaked.

The series of comics within read great, Providing the full historic beginning and series run of Marvel comic character legends; including Spider-man, Doc Ock, Vulture, Sandman, Fantastic four to mention a few. I'm glad I was able to go back and read the origins of so many characters, even if some of them weren't really fleshed out. Spider-Man was revolutionary in its time for giving the role of a big-time superhero to someone aged to more appropriately act as a sidekick; someone as young as Peter Parker, a high school student, being the Amazing Spider-Man was a daring concept in a time when manly men and grown women predominately occupied the title of full-fledged superhero. That was nearly sixty years ago at the time of this writing, and Spider-Man has never once succumbed to the type of obscurity which ideas lacking in originality and innovation are wont to suffer through the passage of time. Johnny Storm má všechny neduhy pubertálního drajvu a nejednou si se Spider-manem vjedou do vlasů, jen aby si poměřili pindíky, přesto neváhá a přispěchá nabídnout Spider-manovi pomocnou ruku, kdykoliv vycítí přesilu a pomluvy mířené na Spider-mana v arcu Spidey Strikes Back bere možná ještě hůř než titulní hrdina.Still this book represents the creme-de-la-creme - and anyone with the slightest interest in heroes in tights owes it to themselves to check this out. This is one of the run’s better outings as the Torch and Spidey relationship continues here, and they establish their meeting place atop the Statue of Liberty. Writing about this collection of Spider-Man’s earliest appearances is the best way I can think of to start a blog about graphic novels and collected editions because, in a way, the final issue of Amazing Fantasy is an origin story for Spider-Man and for myself.

For people who grew up reading Spider-Man comics, The Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus is a great way to relive those memories in one convenient place – memories well worth re-exploring because, unlike so many other things that captured our imaginations as children, Spider-Man actually withstands the test of time.

A Marvel collectors must have, even if just used as a reference library, although the quality and standard of the publication makes it worthy of much more praise and honourable display on any library shelf. The best alternative is probably the Marvel Masterworks series I mentioned at the beginning of this review, which is finally seeing some very nice softcover reprints. Jonah Jameson and the Daily Bugle staff, Peter Parker’s high school graduation, and Spider-Man’s attempt to join the Fantastic Four – by force!

In 40 issues of web-slinging, wisecracking wonderment, Lee and Ditko built the foundation for decades of Spidey spectaculars: girl trouble, bill trouble, the Daily Bugle and a cast of friends, family and foes unlike any other! That's a lot of comics, and the fact that the letters page is included is just icing on the cake(I love letters pages! Also, it’s a two parter that has a really good cliffhanger, even the fact that Spider-Man lost his suit plays into this.While the adults strive to do evil, maintain power, or work for personal gain, it is the youthful Peter Parker that is responsible, fighting for justice and righteousness even to his own personal detriment. I love that Peter thinks of becoming a member of the Fantastic Four (that will take awhile), and their fight is really fun. In the wake of both Steve Ditko's and Stan Lee's unfortunate passings in 2018, appreciation for their storied work has reached an all-time high, and for good reason.
