- Full Description
For more than 50 years he’s been a star of comic books, television, movies, and Broadway, and now, with 192 pages of carefully selected images and top notch narrative by veteran writer and ex-Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas, here is your authoritative guide to the everyman super hero! Packed with turning points in his history, with great art by creators from Steve Ditko and John Romita, to Todd McFarlane and Alex Ross.
Since his debut in Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962, Spider-Man has been a hero to millions. Peter Parker was an ordinary teen who received powers from a radioactive spider, and failed to stop the man who would murder his uncle. This led him on a singular quest to take on the mantle of Spider-Man and rid New York City of the bad guys, and we’ve been rooting for him ever since.
We get not only comic book images, but photos of creators, art and photos from the television series, the films and licensed goodies. Roy Thomas is the right man for the job--half the book closely examines the seminal years of 1962-1975, when so much happened, including the death of Gwen Stacy and the first appearances of so many great villains and supporting characters.
