Collects Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #1-38, Amazing Spider-Man Annual (1964) #1-2, Strange Tales Annual #2 and material from Amazing Fantasy (1962) #15 And Fantastic Four Annual #1. In 1962, in the pages of a series slated for cancellation, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created one of the most enduring icons in American popular media: The 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. 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! Now, experience the entire Lee/Ditko Spider-Man run in one gorgeous volume!
