In 1962, in the pages of a comic book slated for cancellation, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave birth to one of the most enduring icons in American popular culture - the one and only Amazing Spider-Man! Turning the concept of a super hero on its head, they imbued the young, guilt-ridden Peter Parker with the fantastic powers of an arachnid and the fantastic pressures of an everyday teenager. The combination was pure magic. With this Epic Collection you can leap into Spider-Man’s web-slinging world from the very beginning. Collecting AMAZING FANTASY (1962) 15, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963) 1-17, ANNUAL (1964) 1.
