Great early '70s Spider-Man Oct. 3 2009
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Just about everyone who buys a Marvel Masterwork volume pretty much knows what he can expect in the way of content. The major issue for collections such as these is whether the reproduction does justice to the original material. As is almost a given for Marvel Masterworks since Cory Sedlmeier became the Collection Editor, this volume meets that criterion with ease. It is a lovely looking volume.

But it stacks up well taken on its own intrinsic merits as well. Gil Kane and John Romita divide the pencilling chores between them and combined with their inkers (Romita himself for two issues) turn in a fabulous effort. The scripting is not quite what it was in previous volumes as Stan Lee had hit the wall by then but Lee and Roy Thomas turn in some fine efforts. Noteworthy here is the introduction of future Marvel minor league character Morbius, the Living Vampire and the start of the redemption of Flash Thompson from Peter Parker's least favorite guy to close friend.

The book also has both an introduction by Roy Thomas and an afterward by John Romita, both entertaining and informative reads. There are also as usual some original artwork pages as bonus material. Missing are creator biographies but perhaps it was felt that repeating them would not be the best use of the space.

No comic fan will be disappointed with this volume.

The last of the truly great Spidey stories June 24 2010
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Marvel Masterworks: Amazing Spider-Man, v.11
------------------------------------------------------
Some Marvel old-timers will tell you that when Stan Lee left the book, the glory days were over. But I think there was still some juice left during Gil Kane's tenure as artist (fun, kinetic, rubbery stuff), and writer Roy Thomas delivered some fab, fun stories early in his run. This volume also features the brief return of artist John Romita, and lots of groovy, gimmicky story arcs. There are the Morbius episodes, (where Spidey grew four extra arms, and Gil Kane drew an awesome version of The Lizard); also, the journey to the Savage Land and a crossover with the then-canceled Doctor Strange -- this was all great stuff. "The Amazing Spider-Man" book really lost it when Ross Andru took over as the artist: ugh. After about issue #115 or so, the stories became dull and strained, and the book slid into tedium. But this volume is still solid, vintage Marvel merriment. Go for it! (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)

Nice addition to the Marvel Masterworks line March 4 2010

Nice to see Marvel continue their Spider-Man Marvel Masterworks editions. This issue contains Spidey #100-109....not some of the best stories since Stan Lee was off writing a screenplay the scripting was done by Roy Thomas and Stan's magic is certainly missed..Gil Kane's art on these issues is either great or just down right below par...I remember buying these issues as a kid when they first came out and thinking the same thing...Is it only me but does anyone else see the weird resemblence of Michael Jackson to Morbius the Vampire???
