Folio Society's Upcoming 'Marvel Heroes' Series Spotlights Spider-Man
"He saves a world every single day. Every person out there means the world to somebody. And Spidey’s out there risking his neck for all of ‘em." — THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #801
Spider-senses everywhere have been tingling in anticipation of this second volume in Folio Society’s acclaimed Marvel Heroes series. The amazing Spider-Man collects twelve momentous tales of web-slinging action. Also included is a complete replica of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1, created by the legendary team of Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. Following Folio Society’s Captain America, this dazzling edition presents an exclusive portrait of an iconic Super Hero.
Former Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas has selected archetypal stories from almost sixty years of crime-fighting adventure and his expert introduction will guide you through the tangled web of a Super Hero whose powers prove as much a tragic curse as a teenager’s dream come true. You’ll discover the debuts of Doctor Octopus and Venom, as well as Peter Parker’s first encounter with his young successor, Miles Morales. This hardback edition comes sheathed in a beautiful blue-and-red slipcase stamped with Spidey’s iconic sigil, while the cover features original artwork by Marcos Martín, the multiple- award-winning Marvel artist famed for his work on Spider-Man.
Spider-Man first appeared in the pages of 1962’s AMAZING FANTASY #15, an anthology title on the brink of cancellation. But the wall-crawler proved so phenomenally popular that he received his own title just seven months later. Launching in March 1963, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 has been reproduced here as a perfect replica, stored within a pocket inside the slipcase. Folio has scanned an original collector’s copy, leaving no authentic detail excluded.
The most groundbreaking moments from this six-decade saga are collected in the main book, including art and storytelling by masters old and new, from artists John Romita, Todd McFarlane, Steve Ditko and Sara Pichelli to writers Brian Michael Bendis, Dan Slott and Stan Lee.
