Growing up, I loved "The Amazing Spider-Man" comic books. And this collection comes from the era when I started reading all about Spider-Man and got my hands on any issues my parents or grandparents would buy for me.

Yes, I had a lot of gaps in the collection, but I still have fond memories of enjoying the stories.

I probably should have left them as fond memories because, quite frankly, the stories in here haven't aged well. Outside of one arc with a third incarnation of the Green Goblin, most of Spidey's battles are largely forgettable. Peter Parker does graduate college but even that's not really enough to sustain things for the entire run collected in this volume.
