Ultimate Spider-man Hardback.,
This review is from: Ultimate Spider-Man Volume 1 HC: v. 1 (Hardcover)
When this book hit stores, I knew that I just had to buy it.
Spider-man is one of the most popular superhero characters to young and old readers alike. But as we finally see the stage where Spider-man hits the cinema screen, along comes a whole range of new fans that just want to know more about our friendly neighbourhood Spider-man.
The Marvel Ultimate line of comics is quite possibly the best way to introduce yourself with the character.
This hardback edition covers the first 13 issues of the Ultimate Spider-man title.
4:With great responsibility.
6:Big time superhero.
9:Meet the enforcers.
10:The worst thing.
This features Spider-man's first real taste of being a super hero and learning the trade that has made him the most influential hero in Marvel's history.
The book also contains charcter biographies, draft sketches, e-mails from the writers and artists and a reprint of the Spider's first comic book outing
Amazing Fantasy 15, written by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
As the series reaches new heights and the seperate issus gaining more value by the month, this hardback book is essential to all buding comic fans and veterans alike.
The comes with a dust cover designed by Joe Quesada and when removed, it reveals a fantastic blue hardcover with orange engraved title "Ultimate Spider-man".
And possibly the best thing about this book...this is just volume 1 (volume 1 and 2 in paperback) of a series that is not only re-telling the legend that is Spider-man, but is constantly breaking new ground.
So, until the Kingpin feels the need to do an early morning jog followed by a low calorie fruit shake...Make mine the Mighty Marvel.
and a pre villain visit from good old Docter Octopus.
(+ and a few others)
