Collecting Amazing Spider-Man issues #96, 97, 98, 99-102, and 121! Eight complete issues of Spider-Man stories, including some of the very best comics the wall crawler has ever appeared in: the infamous non comics code approved LSD drug issues, the "six-arm" Spider-Man storyline that also introduced Morbius for the very first time, and the classic of classics-The Night Gwen Stacy Died! Reproduced from the original art showing every line, every correction, every nuance. And presented in full-sized glory, exactly as the art was first drawn from early 1971 to 1973.
The Green Goblin is featured prominently, as is Morbius, and there are additional appearances by Doc Ock, the Kingpin, the Lizard, and the Vulture. There will also be a gallery section with covers and exceptional splash pages. Gil Kane was always a bit hobbled in his work at DC Comics. He did wonderful work on Green Lantern and The Atom and Mystery in Space and Strange Adventures. But DC had a house style that dictated just how far they'd allow in the way of action and drama. When Gil moved to Marvel, the fetters came off and he was suddenly doing brat-out action in the best tradition of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.
Additional scripting by Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway, with inks by John Romita and Frank Giacoia.
