Sure, it s dated and juvenile, but it s also a great time capsule of the 60 s It s definitely fun and the art by Steve Ditko gets better as the volume goes on There is no continuous story other than Peter Parker or Palmer , as at least one issue calls Pete encountering villain after villain and gradually refining his crime fighting technique I suspect that was actually Stan Lee refining the logic behind what would become a world famous pop culture character The introductions of the Vulture, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, the Lizard, and Electro are notable, though none of them have a very sympathetic goal other than to steal money Clearly the real focus is on the downside of being a hero, which consistently makes Peter sympathetic pretty common these days, but it must have been one of the very first steps toward a mature superhero story. It was a lot of fun revisiting the first appearances of Peter Parker or Peter Palmer, according to Amazing Spider Man 2 as your friendly neighborhood wall crawler, even if the writing and art wasn t all that amazing.This collection of stories features some the most iconic Spider Man villains ever, including The Vulture, Doctor Octopus, The Lizard, The Sandman, and Electro And there are even several cameos by the Fantastic Four How can you go wrong All in all, a pretty great slice of nostalgia for Spidey fans, like me. Best EPub, Marvel Masterworks 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 Marvel Masterworks , 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 From the wide spectrum of all the different characters that Stan Lee and Steve Ditko have created, none are as popular as Spider Man.What has made him so famous over time is how well the world of Spider Man has been built up Spider Man Peter Parker is not your typical superhero with endless amount of money or secret lairs, he s just a high school kid with real life problems, like rent, study, job This makes the character relatable and the readers are invested in the book.Like the early works of Stan Lee, this book is also not without its fair amount of ridiculousness, but it is in its minimum as compared to those other works Peter Parker himself is a lovable character and he is supported by a variety of characters who stand out so well on their own especially J Jonah Jameson Give that guy some pictures of Spider Man The art may seem a bit dated, but the character designs are so well that they are still including the modern comic book artists to this day.With a new and iconic villain bring introduced in every other issue and with an equally interesting plot, the early Spider Man stories are nothing short of a classic. This collects the first 11 appearances of Spider Man, so that is way I m going to give it a 5 star rating Spider Man is also a huge icon for so many people, so it s really hard to give this anything lower However, there are something I didn t like about this volume..GASP I m really glad to see that Spider Man has lasted so long because some of these stories feel dated now The fact that Aunt Mary doesn t know who Spider Man is makes me wonder how long Peter Parker kept it a secret from her Form these stories she should have figured it a long time ago Not sure why he kept it a secret form her either.This volume also shows why I don t like some Spider Man stuff, he s got some boring villains This has got some of the classics that are have lasted and some that seemed kind of random Electro has been a favorite of mine for some weird reason might be the powers , but then you got the Vulture my least favorite Spider Man villain.Even though these are minor nit picky critiques I had with the volume, this is totally worth the read Spider Man fans NEED to read the first issue at least and Marvel fans should pick it up as well Spider Man has become the main icon for all of Marvel comicseven though the movies don t show that Nothing to do with the review, but thoughts after reading this volume Speaking of movies, I m glad Marvel is doing yet another origin story of Spider Man Peter Parker From everything I ve seen he s never a teenager or he is young adult passing as a teenager I main the point of his character was to have super powers and have the troubles of growing up as a teen in NYC Plus I would love to see them do the villains better too Spider Man needs better and enjoyable movies. Too 60s for me sonny jimDNF 9% The first 10 comics for the Amazing Spider Man I really enjoyed reading these comics and reading his original stories I loved the way that he engaged his villains and even though sometimes the dialogue was a bit corny, the writing style of Stan Lee was always awesome The drawings made the story truly come to life and really drove home why I love these styled drawings, the simplicity of them The way that they can carry a story and give you exactly what you need I loved that these stories didn t just focus on Spider Man, they also focused on Peter Parker and his love for his Aunt May, their struggles with money and how he was just a teenager, trying to figure out what he should do with these incredible abilities he gained Overall, really enjoyed seeing the original Spider Man and I can t wait to delve deeper After 55 years of media saturation, it s easy to forget just how weird Spider Man is The very first Spider Man stories offer a good reminder In Steve Ditko s hands, the whole enterprise is shot through with a sense of atomic age paranoia, and the scientifically scarred and altered villains are genuinely creepy Here, Peter Parker is also a much darker character than he is in the popular imagination He entertains violent revenge fantasies against Flash Thompson, and seemingly the only thing keeping him from becoming a super villain himself is his histrionic guilt over his aunt and uncle The storytelling is also pretty bare bones There s no Harry Osborne or Gwen Stacy or Mary Jane Watson, and each issue follows the same formulaic structure The Amazing Spider Man would quickly get much better than these first 11 issues both in Ditko s art and in the plotting by Ditko and Lee, but the subsequent stories lose some of the pure Ditko weirdness on display here. Okay, obviously this is not a book nor a graphic novel What is contained here is the origin of Spider Man Amazing Fantasy 15 as well as issues 1 10 of The Amazing Spider Man While I have read the majority of these stories through the 25 cent reprint mags Marvel used to issue which I have, lovingly backed sealed boxed , there were a couple I hadn t While a bit small on the Kindle, it wasn t too small to read, and it was nice to see in color For those not aware, Stan Lee and Marvel Comics were totally different than the ones presented by DC who had the Superman Batman stable of heroes Marvel was all about the characters and fleshed them out, just like a good book While Superman didn t fret much except staying away from Kryptonite and keeping his secret identity safe, Spider Man was actually a high school student who had to deal with bullying, being a wage earner so he could help out at home, girl friends although it was the lack of in the beginning , and the various challenges that arise for all superheroes It was a regular occurrence for Spider Man to become tired, or have injuries, or to have the villain beat him senseless Great fun for old or new fans to be able to see the original comics Five stars. Sometimes these oldies are a bit rough, but it s not hard to see how this comic has been so popular for so long.
