Not as Good as the First Two Volumes, But Still Great Nov. 25 2013
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book collects Amazing Spider-man #20-30 and Annual #2.

First of all, this Volume in Spider-man's adventures was not quite as good as the prior two particularly Volume 2. However, the quality doesn't drop much. The first two collections contained the introduction of Spider-man's most amazing foes, the Sinister Six, and the superb story arch from Amazing Spider-man #17-#19.

This book is less groundbreaking. As he did with Fantastic Four, once Lee has a good stable of established villains, he tends not to tinker too much. Issue 20 sees the introduction of the Scorpion and Issue 28 sees the introduction of Molten Man (definitely not in Spidey's pantheon of memorable villains) but the book does have some great return appearances by Green Goblin and Mysterio. Then, of course, there was the precursor to the Spider Slayers in Amazing Spider-man #25, which was an absurd looking but powerful robot with J Jonah Jameson's image on it that would later be adapted to the 1960s cartoon series.

In addition, we see some key milestone for Peter including his high school graduation and a break up with Betty Brant in Amazing Spider-man #30. Comic relief comes into play when Peter loses his costume after battling the robot in AS #25 and he spends the next two issues trying to manage with a costume store knock off that ironically saves his secret identity.

Overall, this is Spidey the way Stan Lee made him: fun, with lots of problems, and a great cast of villains. Five stars all the way.

This beats the heck outta Modern Day comics... Aug. 27 2011
By Knight Rodrigo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're looking for the definition of a good comic book, these Marvel Masterworks are the ones to get. Spidey's adventures are clean and full of action and fun, and it's always good to see young nervous Peter Parker mature along the way. This is Spider-Man without any complication, no clones, symbiotes, android parents, just Scorpions, Goblins, Crime Masters, Molten Man, and failed Special Effects artists.
Love this comic! June 2 2014

This is some of Stan Lee's finest work. It probably trumps the modern Marvel movies purely in entertainment value! I loved it.

Very good book Jan. 18 2013
By Susan M. Nickle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the book and would certainly suggest it to any marvel and spider-man lover. I did like how it was shipped but it was upsetting to see it was tagged with a black sharpie. Otherwise everything was good.
