Crazy cool if you love comic books Essential Spider Man Volume 3, Lee.Romita, 2002, Marvel Comics, 528 black white pagesThis Essentials volume reprints Amazing Spider Man 45 68, the period when Lee was laughing all the way to the bank and deeply annoying other orginal members of the bullpen, especially Jack Kirby, by claiming that he had created everything, and when Romita was learning how to do it like Kirby Apparently sales rose significantly during this period, but probably because Marvel Comics generally were hitting their stride and extending their range by appealing to the campus crowd as well as a growing number of adolescents, rather than any superiority of Romita s art to Ditko s, which is what Lee has implied on several occasions In fact, many Spider Man fans consider this to be the period when the quality of the comic dipped because it lost its edginess bestowed on it because of Ditko s quirky artwork Ditko s art has never been better than during this period, and probably even so on Doctor Strange, much preferable to Romita s increasingly slick style, and Lee s stories became increasingly just villain of the month coupled with his famous illusion of change instead of real change, but still providing solid entertainment. Amazing E Book, Essential Amazing Spider Man, Vol 3 Marvel Essentials By Stan Lee This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Essential Amazing Spider Man, Vol 3 Marvel Essentials , Essay By Stan Lee Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You The stories in these first five or so volumes of the Spidey Essentials are the defining Spidey stories for me. 4.5 starsThis was so fun I have never read a comic book before the closest ever being the funnies in the paper but I wanted to give the a try so didn t pass this up when I was at my library say a couple weeks ago And I ve been glued to the thing ever since I liked seeing Spider Man s original story I also liked seeing his inner story from a new perspective The only thing strange about it was how the characters described what they were doing before or during the time they did it But that is probably because there are pictures instead of descriptions which I am use to Will be getting the next volume of The Amazing Spider Man There are several story lines in this volume, the three major ones are Peter battled the Green Goblin and temporarily stopped him, but Norman Osbourne s memory is coming back Kingpin s plot involving Gwen Stacy s dad, which led to drama but also brought the youngsters together Peter got temporary amnesia and forgot who he is.Of course May Parker keeps getting sick every issue and being a total cxnt to Peter, the same drama occur each issue Mary Jane so far is really annoying trying to get attention and compete with Gwen Also no one seems to be studying There was also a one issue crossover with inhumans, that was a pretty bad issue though showed how bad business practice can ruin your capital Disappointingly, there was one issue covering the counter cultural revolution. GAH I JUST WANT STAN TO STOP WRITING ALREADY HIS LITTLE ASIDES AND HORRIBLE TICS ARE SO DAMN DOSTRACTING AND TAKE THESE FROM CLASSIC TO ABOVE AVERAGE Okay, that s out of my system The relationship and character building stuff SO good Great even Romita is outstanding The issues from 54 62 were an amazing arc The one shots were good too The parts that don t work are stans dialogue, first and foremost forever, and some annoyingly similar villains Stans fault anyways We also see spidey hang it up for the first time, which was a truly amazing issue. These books are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo genderist. This edition of the third essential Amazing Spider man book collected Issues 44 65 and Amazing Spider man Annual 4.During this era, the book s developed a definite rhythm There were a few standalone stories, but Lee s comics compromised a lot of multi party story archs.The book begins off with a decent battle against the Lizard 44 and 45 , Issues 46 introduced the Shocker and had Peter move out on his own Issues 47 49 were sensational as Spidey faced Kraven the Hunter, and then the new Vulture Issue 50 featured one of the most iconic Spider man covers of all time, Spider man No More as Peter tries but fails to hang up his webs The character of the King Pin is also introduced in Issue 50 and he d been planning on Spider man retirement Instead, Spidey battles the Kingpin In Issues 51 52 which also features J Jonah being captured and Spidey having to get him to somehow cooperate Spider man Annual 4 is not as good as 1 or 3, but it s pretty fun as it guest stars the Human Torch Someone has the idea of doing Spidey Torch movie, but who are the men behind the curtain It s not a blockbuster plot, but it s still enjoyable.Issues 53 56 has an epic battle with Doc Ock In Issue 55, Spidey loses his memory and Doc Ock convinces him that they re allies and Spidey helps him until figuring out better At the end of Issue 56, he still doesn t have memory and is wanted by the police for the first time in the series.Still without his memory in Issue 57, he battles, who is tricked into fighting Spidey by the JJJ In Issue 58, he regains his memory but has to first face the new and improved Spider slayer piloted by Jameson Issues 59 61 has Spidey battling the Brainwasher actually another villain by another name who has taken control of Gwen Stacy s father Captain Stacy And Peter faces a tough decision at the end of Issue 60 as he has to take a step that could save Stacy s life but will alienate Gwen.Issue 62 is probably the weakest story in this book Fantastic Four Inhumans supporting character Medusa shows up to see if humans were tolerate her people and be open with her Like Sub mariner in similar circumstances, she tries to see if they can live in peace by acting like an imperious jerk The story is really a filler and a bridge to the final serial.Issues 63 65 find that the old Vulture presumed dead is alive and back dangerous than ever At the end of Issue 64, Spidey wins the battle but is taken to jail as City Hall debates whether they can remove his mask and a jail break occurs Overall, this may have been my favorite silver age Spidey collection so far The character grows up, moving out of Aunt May s house into a pad with Harry Osborn in Issue 46 Peter still cares about his Aunt When a fight with Doctor Octopus leads to another heart attack, Peter moves with righteous fury to contront his foe On a less dramatic route, Peter shows concern for his Aunt while he s out and when he s with her, he loving teases her in this wonderful charming way Here, Peter s love for his aunt is charming and natural unlike some later versions.Captain Stacy is introduced in Issue 56 and lends a great deal of gravitas to the proceedings He s a fully formed, complex adult figure who counters the cartoonish J Jonah While the Fantastic Four was adding forgettable characters like Wyatt Wingfoot, Stacy was a true gem.The stories themselves were rich and full of twists They were exciting and oftentimes emotionally charged They were well developed and well executed Several issues also featured foreshadowing of the coming return of the Green Goblin.The art remained solid throughout The only thing I didn t like was Mary Jane getting a perm in Issue 65 Ugh Though perhaps that s just because I m not a fan of perms Regardless, this is a must for Spidey fans. This set starts off with a bang with spme great villian centric issues in a row, then there s a lot of Peter still being kinda a douche but people being okay with it now, and then a pretty sweet old school monster movie type issue at the end These are still historical significance reads with a few exceptions.
