Conan The Barbarian Epic Collection: The Original Marvel Years - Of Once And Future Kings
In 1962, in the pages of a comic book slated for cancellation, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave birth to one of the most enduring icons in American popular culture: the Amazing Spider-Man! Turning the concept of a super hero on its head, they imbued the young, guilt-ridden Peter Parker with the fantastic powers of an arachnid and the fantastic pressures of an everyday teenager. The combination was pure magic. Now you can leap into Spider-Man's web-slinging world from the beginning - including the tragic origin that started it all; the first appearances of the Daily Bugle and J. Jonah Jameson; and the debut of classic villains including the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, the Sandman, the Vulture and Electro! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963) #1-17, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL (1964) #1 and material from AMAZING FANTASY (1962) #15.
