An interesting collection of Spider-Man stories featuring Mary-Jane Watson (Parker).

Pivotal moments in the history of Mary Jane and her back-story are revealed here. Not exactly a definitive collection, but still enough to annoy me that Marvel ret-conned the Peter and MJ marriage.

Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson will always be married to me. No matter what idiocy Marvel foists upon its readers.

This collection brings together some of the best stories featuring the two, and traces their relationship from the famous first meeting (from whence comes the book's title) all the way to J. Michael Strazynski's excellent reunion comic. There is ...more

A decent, but not perfect mix of Spidey/MJ relationship-central stories. I could've done without the McFarlane issue included, but the full graphic novel "Parallel Lives" (which I'd never even heard of til I got this) is totally worth it.
