Be warned: you'll need both hands to lift this mighty tome. Here we have the first ever appearance of everyone's favourite wall-crawler in Amazing Fantasy # 15, as well as the first 38 issues of The Amazing Spider-Man, plus the first two AS-M Annuals and, as a bonus, the meeting between Spidey and the Human Torch from Strange Tales Annual # 1.
Artist, Steve Ditko, and scripter, Stan Lee, created Spider-Man in 1962. From the first issue it was clear that we were in for something different. Peter Parker, a.k.a. the Amazing Spider-Man, was not your average super-hero. He was a weedy kid with glasses, a socially inept science geek who lived with his aged aunt. He spent as much time worrying about school bullies as about super-villains. Heck, we even see him sewing his own Spidey costume. He was, as Stan Lee described him to his readers, "The super-hero who could be you." Ditko, with his moody, film noire lighting, strange, jarring perspectives and emotionally expressive figures, was the perfect choice to bring this off-the-wall character to life. And the rest, as they say, is history.
These stories set the tone for Spider-Man in ways that are still obvious across the Marvel Universe to this day. In them, Ditko created a gallery of rogues who remain staples of the MU: The Lizard, The Scorpion, Kraven the Hunter and, of course, the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus.
Many of these tales stand the test of time remarkably well, combining great characterisation and snappy dialogue with Ditko's unique, highly stylised art and brilliant gift for visual storytelling. All these elements come together in the story arc that runs from issue 31 to 33.

Paper is good, binding is good and the colours are good.
Far better than the rubbish effort of the Masterwork edition.
Better layout means that its easier to read than the first printing.
If I had to own 1 Spider-Man book - this would be it.
The only alternative could be a future Panini reprint, and that would be much cheaper - but smaller, and perhaps preferable for some.

New edition due out 28 August 2013.

Worth waiting for...a thing of beauty and a joy forever. Ditko was THE Spidey creator never matched before or since. He also created the look, the villains and plotted most of the stories too.

If only he'd stayed another year...or two.

First things first, some serious bodybuilding is going to have to be in place before you can begin reading. This thing is HEAVY. But what a treat you have in store. I have been a fan of Spiderman since the 70's when my friend and I used to make the weekly pilgrimage to a comic book store in New Cross called Weird Fantasy. I remember so clearly the huge picture of spiderman they had over the door as you walked in. I still have many of those comics all these years later, and have been looking for an anthology that does justice to such an iconic figure ever since.
This book is it and it really is difficult to convey just how good it is. You need to have it, see it and read it,to appreciate the quality and attention to detail that has made this, in my humble opinion, the definitive account of everyone's favorite webslinger. First up it is printed on superb quality paper that does justice to the faithfully reproduced artwork of Ditko who to me was the seminal Spiderman artist, never surpassed. I was gobsmaked to discover that the iconic cover of AF #15 was drawn not by Ditko but by Jack Kirby apparently because Stan Lee felt that Ditko's cover did not convey enough action in it! And guess what....Ditko's original never used cover is reproduced in this volume (which for the record I actually prefer to Kirby's but then I never was much of a fan, favoring Ditko's quirky unique style every time)
It is these little nuggets that make this book such a delight, you will find every issues letter pages reproduced which breathes life into the stories and provides a slice of 60's Americana which is fascinating and adds to the overall experience.
The quality of the binding in this new reprint can't go unmentioned.

I bought it to revisit the best comic artist of all time, Steve Ditko. I used to buy these comics when I was kid. My dear Dad, who didn't understand, made me get rid of them when I was around 17, saying I was too old for them. If I'd kept them I'd be a little richer than I am now, haha. Long live Steve Ditko!

In the wake of events which have probably ruined the character of Spider-Man like One More Day (Spidey doesn't make deals with the devil, people! He isn't Ghost Rider!) and its follow-up in Brand New Day, its refreshing to be able to read and buy such a fantastic collection of Spidey comics. Whilst certainly bunky and liable to take up a lot of your bookshelf, the Marvel Omnibuses like this one feature fun, if perhaps slightly dated, tales of Spider-Man's early days. This booklet features no less than...

- The Origin of Spider-Man!
- The Origin of some of his deadliest enemies, including Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Sandman, Lizard, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and more!
- Both of Peter's main girlfriends before a certain redhead made her first appearance, Betty Brant and Gwen Stacy, plus beloved supporting characters like Aunt May, Flash Thompson and the ever enraged J Jonah Jameson!

In short, if you're enraged at how badly Peter's been writen lately in the comics, pick this up. If nothing else, the characters were all original and yet to be riped off a thousand times over in the years to come. If you pick any two Omnibuses for your Marvel collection, get this one and the Fantastic Four one, another great read.
