Summary

IDW proudly presents GIL KANE’S THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: ARTIST'S EDITION, collecting issues 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102 and 121. Eight incredible 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!

Nearly every page has been scanned from the original art at the same size Gil Kane drew it, and in color (to insure the best possible reproduction). This Artist's Edition measures 12 x 17 inches and is an extra-long 216 pages. Each book is shipped in a custom cardboard box for maximum protection. Available in late December 2012.

Brought to you by the same team responsible for the Eisner Award-winning Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer: The Artist's Edition, as well as Wally Wood’s EC Stories: Artist’s Edition.

WHAT IS AN ARTIST’S EDITION?

AN ARTIST'S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.

While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

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!
