- 5 / 5 – Must Read for Spider-Man fans!! Review by BobBretall
This volume reprints comics from within the 1st year that I was reading comics "off the rack" and what I was reading back then was primarily The Amazing Spider-Man. I can't describe the mind-blowing awe of a 9-year old flipping to the last page of ASM #100 in days before the internet. Nowadays almost every storyline is spoiled before you have a chance to experience it 1st hand if you are prowling around the web (or even pick up USA Today) when Marvel/DC get some press by revealing a key story point for publicity the day or day before a book hits the stands.
In any event, seeing these pages reproduced full size is a treat beyond compare. For me it's primarily seeing the original art in all it's glory. I'd never be able to afford even a single page from one of these books so seeing them all here is a thrill. My hat is off to Scott Dunbier for bringing these Artist's Editions to the fans!
