Book Description

Feb. 18 2009 Marvel Masterworks the Amazing Spider-Man (Book 1)
Celebrate Marvel's 70th anniversary by experiencing the tales of the world's most-famous super heroes from the very beginning! The Marvel Masterworks have brought readers deluxe hardcover collections of Marvel's classics from the Golden Age, Atlas Era, and the mighty Marvel Age, and now you can join in the Masterworks excitement with Marvel's new, monthly Marvel Masterworks trade paperbacks. And where better to start than where comics' most robust line of archival comic collections began - the Amazing Spider-Man! In 1962 in the pages of a comic book slated for cancellation, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave birth to one of the most-enduring icons in American popular culture - the one and only Amazing Spider-Man! Turning the concept of a super hero on its head, they imbued the young, guilt-ridden Peter Parker with the fantastic powers of an arachnid and the fantastic pressures of an everyday teenager. The combination was pure magic. So join us in the following pages as we present stories of spectacular web-slinging adventure from Spidey's very beginning, including the tragic origin that started it all, the first appearances of the Daily Bugle, J. Jonah Jameson, Doctor Octopus, the Sandman, the Vulture, Electro, and guest-star nods by the Fantastic Four and Human Torch. And to top it off, we've packed this volume full of bonuses galore, including the complete original artwork to Spider-Man's Amazing Fantasy #15 origin from the Library of Congress archives! Collects Amazing Fantasy #15 and The Amazing Spider-Man #1-10.

4.0 out of 5 stars great for a paperback Dec 31 2012

Although this is not the hardcover, it does the Marvel works justice. Get it if you want something nice/definitive to be signed by Stan Lee.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cheesy, but that's the charm of it! Aug. 19 2013
By Koopa90
Certainly nothing like the action-packed stuff I grew up with in the 90's but that doesn't mean its not still a good read.
I enjoyed it. I expected a little more than I got from it, but never the less, I still enjoyed reading this collection.
Couldnt help but cringe every time there is a panel of Spider-man swinging, and even though you can see it yourself, you still get 4 speech bubbles on the page telling you who he is and what he is doing, "Wow that man is swinging from wall to wall" ... "Thats no man, its SPIDER-MAN" ... "They say he can climb walls just like a Spider!" ... and so on, its laughable but again, it was the style at the time.

So, down to the basics of this review.

Is it worth reading?
As a Spider-man fan, YES.
If you are new to Spider-man, I'd say NO as the style it's written in (once again, it was of the time period)may throw you off as its not overly interesting.

The book is nicely presented, the pages are that thin type, just like the actual pages of an old comic book.
There is a ton of extra content and even the original, long lost, cut and paste around pilot 11 page comic.
They even kept in the notorious 'Peter Palmer' typo in the early issues, a nice touch.

Well priced.
Well put together.
