The Quality of the Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus - Volume 1 is the typical excellence of Marvel publications. the book will open flat and the quality of the pages and comic representations within are also excellent.
The series of comics within read great, Providing the full historic beginning and series run of Marvel comic character legends; including Spider-man, Doc Ock, Vulture, Sandman, Fantastic four to mention a few. Plus also readers letters highlighting the development of Spider-man and in the early sixties comics.
A Marvel collectors must have, even if just used as a reference library, although the quality and standard of the publication makes it worthy of much more praise and honourable display on any library shelf.
But beyond just reprinting what is in the masterworks Marvel worked in many extras. All the letters pages are reproduced which recaptures the excitement of the Silver Age like nothing else really can. Rereading these letters really takes one back. But wait...there's more! There are three Spider-Man parodies from the contemporary humor comic Not Brand Echh! There are the usual pages of original and unused art including the full color oil paintings from the Spectacular Spider-Man magazines. There are house ads. There are reproductions of the reprint book Marvel Tales covers, four to a page. And finally, reproductions of the seven trade paperback Masterworks covers. I can hardly imagine what else Marvel could have thrown in.
The production values are first rate as well. The book lies flat, opened to almost any page. The reproduction is first rate.
Last but not least there are the stories. Although not as tightly (and densely) plotted as the Ditko stories, these books are still first rate as Peter Parker continues the transition from loser geek to chick magnet as Gwen Stacey and Mary Jane Watson vie for his attention.
Highly recommended. The asking price of this omnibus volume is high but not as high as the relevant masterworks and certainly not the original issues. Any Silver Age Spider-Man fan should consider picking this up.
