Description

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.

The continuation of the outsider stuff from high school is out of place because college is very different. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.Less lauded, but a lot of fun is an early story about a gang war between 1930s throwback Hammerhead and Doctor Octopus, although it’s kind to consider Conway’s next role for Doc Ock merely misguided. The highlight is their fight, a staple of superhero misunderstandings, though there is some silliness with the Torch’s hotheadedness (heh) the silly flame images (a power that doesn’t last), and the contrived ice web.

I consider the mark of a great comic book or graphic novel to be one whose art is never poor enough to detract from the story being told, nor goes so overboard as to derail the reader's attention from the story at hand. I think he’s incredibly overrated, and I love that his first adventure is incredibly goofy, rather nonsensical, and very silly. As these issues were made in the '60s, their writing and illustrations are very simplistic and basic in nature, especially by today's standards. Now don't get me wrong - just because this run represents Spider-Man's best era doesn't mean he's not shone elsewhere. 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!

These old comics from the 1960s were as new to me as the day they were first printed, giving me a personally unique experience with Spider-Man even in this day and age, one that people who are already familiar with the comics may unfortunately miss out on when perusing this omnibus. My only gripe is that the writing on the spine is now a different size and therefore not consistent with the other volumes. The battle in the Daily Bugle office really makes this issue with the ending being a particular fave of mine because Betty Brant is awesome.

Betty’s past catches up with her, and I like her leaving to deal with it all on her own, but the last panel is not great. And it all leads to a confrontation atop the George Washington Bridge that will leave Peter Parker forever changed! For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. Partly because of his immaturity and that need to stay closeted less the Jamesons do anything worse.Much like the Crime Master two-parter, it does a good job of using all the elements of Spider-Man’s life to drive the tension.
