Stan Lee's run on The Amazing Spider-Man progresses, joined now by the most significant co-creator from whom he was not subsequently alienated, John Romita, Sr. Romita brought his considerable background writing romance comics to the series, substantially retooling it to fit his preferred style. This change was remarked upon in the letters columns at the time, with some bemoaning the loner Peter Parker's increasing circle of friends, acquaintances, and potential love interests -- Mary Jane Watso ...more

I think the stories and dialogue are much improved over Ditko's run but Romita's art is a little too clean and traditional for my liking. Let's see... I think my major issue with this run has to be Romita's decision to make Peter handsome and popular with the ladies. I loved the original Peter, the one who was a loser, who had no friends and studied all day. He wore glasses and looked frail enough to tip over by a gust of wind. The idea that someone like this could be a superhero was the selling ...more

Still working my way through the Amazing Spider-Man. I slacked off for a couple months, but lately have returned to it with considerable dedication. I'm into late 1970 now, issue #89 next up.

Civil rights issues of the day are making their appearance in the stories, often ham-handedly shoehorned in where they ...more

4.5 stars - These individual comics (all of which I once owned) were such a large part of my youth, I knew I'd buy this omnibus collection and I'm glad I did. The stories themselves still hold up well, even though many aspects and cultural references are dated. Great memories and lots of fun!
