The End of the Silver Age of Comics Sept. 16 2008
By David Stager - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Finally, the completion of the Spider-Man Silver Age issues. I can vividly remember reading these comics when they came out and I had no idea that this was it -- that there would be no more of this calibre in the future. Spider-Man was literally at his peak of popularity and the issues in this volume are Stan Lee and John Romita in their prime with the characters and stories fully developed.

The volume includes issues 88-99 from 1970-71. The highlight is the first few issues containing a battle with Doctor Octopus that ends up killing Captain Stacy, the father of Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker's love interest. This volume also includes the "drug issues" where the comics code seal of approval was denied because the stories contained images of drug abuse. Hard to imagine today any controversy over such images.

After these issues, Stan Lee didn't write the stories and John Romita didn't draw the pictures and it just wasn't the same. Gil Kane, did his best work here - right up there with his Green Lantern in the 1960's. But this is where the kids moved on to other things along with the talent that abandoned the Marvel franchise at this moment in time.

So savor this and the first 10 Fantastic Four Masterworks as true masterworks. If they publish any more, it will just have the title Masterworks, but the lustre is gone. This is the last of the really good stuff. Enjoy it. The last issue here actually has a happy ending too. It's time to put it all away and behind us now. But what memories... these stories will take you back. A definite buy.

Another great edition to the Spider-Man Masterworks. They can't put these out fast enough for me! This edition brings Gil Kane's art to Spidey!
