This Spiderman beginning-of-it-all is really a must for me. Marvel came to Sweden in the late 60's and the first 30 or so of the Spiderman stories were never published until in the 80's so we started directly with post-Ditko. But Romita's strong pencil work was probably better for the bw-publications that was the common comic-book standard then.
But I love this volume and it looks very good alongside the others
I would like to read them in order and many for the first time without opening my treasures!
Twenty pages in and let me tell you all...$100 for almost 50 original Ditko/Kirby/Romita artwork and old Lee stories...what a great bargain!
Also excellent binding..will not fall apart with reading.
This book, as you probably already know, packs the origin and the first four years of Spider-Man's adventures. All of Spidey's arch-villains (excepted Venom and Carnage) feature : Doc Octopus, Green Goblin, you name them. All of Spidey's world was set during these first chapters: his bullies (and future friends), his girlfriends (including the then-mysterious MJ), Aunt May etc.
When these adventures were first published, almost 50 years ago, they were genuinely pioneering, revolutionary, seminal even. The super hero comics as we know them today would not exist without this masterpiece by Stan LEE and Steve DITKO. I do not know how the teenagers of today will connect with it, but for this reader -- who read the issues herein compiled at the tender age of ten, when they were first published in France (that means the early 70s to you) --, it ages rather well. I believe all serious comics fans in the world should own these adventures and this "omnibus" is probably the best way to do so.
