The Amazing Spider-Man: Secret Origins was a really fun collection to read. And while I’m super new to reading Spider-Man and superhero comics in general, I was definitely able to follow along despite the included issues being non-sequential.

However, as much as I liked The Amazing Spider-Man comics, I’m not sure if I’m going to read more. I’m big time intimidated at the decades and decades of Spider-Man there is to catch up on. Although, truth be told, I’m really only interested in reading the o
A great introduction to the world of The Amazing Spider-Man, sbowcasing the prominent characters of the film. This is a must have companion of the original 60's source material. You get into the early days of Peter Parker and see a good example of why he's such an inconic character that has endured. Features the incredibly great artwork of Steve Ditko and John Romita.
