Comments: The Amazing Spider-Man is featured in this issue with reprints from the original series. All the familiar characters are in these pages; Peter Parker, Led Leeds, Betty Brant, J. Jonah Jameson, Flash Thompson, Harry Osborn, Liz Allen, Aunt May, Mary-Jane Watson.
Spider-Man does get into some hard hitting action. Poor Spider-Man he is a hero as Spider-Man but he has such bad luck as Peter Parker.
The art is old school and so beautiful to look at. The action poses and Spider-Man in the fight scenes show you the kind of excitement you live for.
We get to see such villains as Doc Ock, Hammerhead and others. You will thrill to reading these adventures of everyone's favorite wall-crawler.
The Vulture is illustrated amazingly. For an old man he can fight and fly. These two put on a show that you are sure to want to watch.
The one thing in these stories that makes Spider-Man stand out is that he is also Peter Parker an ordinary guy with an ordinary life.
The Sinister Six strike; Mysterio, Doc Ock, Kraven, Sandman, Electro and Vulture team-up. This battle is a spectacular display of fighting with each villain using their powers and abilities to full effect. Spider-Man is hard pressed against these vile villains.
There are some emotional moments to. Peter remembering his Uncle Ben fondly.
Spider-Man and Deadpool team-up and yes its silly a lot. Taskmaster makes for a nice villain.
If you want Spider-Man as how he should be presented your in luck True Believer. Swing into this exciting adventure and you will never be the same again.

Comments: This issue features the Avengers. This issue features first how the Avengers were first formed.
Loki sets up the Hulk to lure Thor out. Ant-Man and the Wasp and Iron Man are also drawn in. Thor is lured away while the rest must face the Hulk.
The art is amazing yes it is from years ago, 1963. Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers though know how to deliver pure excitement and then some. We also get to see Iron Man in his gold colored suit of armor and Ant-Man and Wasp in their first costumes. The Hulk is more bulky here as well.
It is awesome to read and see the Avengers as they form into a team.
"the Space Phantom" Now this creature is a menace and his imitating power makes him even more so. Giant-Man makes his appearance here and the Wasp has insect super senses.
There is a great battle with the Space Phantom and Iron Man, Giant-Man, Wasp and the Hulk. The action and excitement is thrilling and super fast paced. When Thor joins in it is only a matter of time till the battle is won.
"Havoc on the Homefront!" The Wizard has escaped and the Avengers respond. Captain America, She-Hulk and the Scarlet Witch get to him. His house is a death trap that puts the Avengers through their paces. It all comes down to who is the smartest fighter. We all know who that is.
"I Want to be an Avenger!" Spider-Man wants to join the Avengers and you should see his grand entrance. The art is simply stunning. Spider-Man joins Captain America, She-Hulk and Starfox on an adventure. They face a small army of Lava Men.
"Meltdowns and Mayhem!" The Avengers and Spider-Man face off against the combined might of Blackout, Moon Stone, Electro and the Rhino. Super-Heroes vs Super Villains in all out action with gorgeous art.
"A Not-So-Beautiful Mind" This adventure is from Marvel Adventures so Giant-Girl, Storm and Spider-Man are part of the Avengers team along with Hulk, Wolverine, Iron Man and Captain America. M.O.D.O.C. and A.I.M.
"Even A Hawkeye Can Cry!" Man-Bull, Melter, Whirlwind and Egghead take on Spider-Man, Iron Man, Giant-Girl, Wasp, Storm, Wolverine, Captain America and Hawkeye shows up to help.
"Absolute Zero" In this cold weather adventure Captain America and Hawkeye both are drawn to bulky, the Black Widow though is drawn nice and slim and fit.
"The Avengers Protocol" adapted by Joe Caramagna. The line-up is Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hulk and Falcon. Red Skull and M.O.D.O.K. make formidable opponents.
These stories of the Avengers are how they are meant to be. They are one hard hitting team of the world's greatest super-heroes.
