great comic
So far, this is one of the greatest comic-book stories I have read. Stan Lee is quite consistent in the plot-complexity that he initiated from the very beginning. At this point, he is getting better at it. Peter Parker struggles with his own identity throughout most of these action-packed episodes. Peter asks: "Why do I do it? Why do I continue risking my life... causing a thousand unnecessary problems... a thousand heartaches and sleepless nights? Have I an insane lust for power... a need to feel more important than those around me?" (Spidey Smashes Out, February 1967) These questions will be the major thread in these issues as he battles with the Lizard, the Shocker, Kraven the hunter, two Vultures, the King Pin, Doctor Octopus, and Mysterio. He calls quit in issue 50, "Spider-Man No More" and makes a comeback as he struggles with the King Pin and goes through a "to be or not to be" moment.

Issues 50 to 52, which start with "Spider-Man No More", are probably the best in this collection, and the cover with Spidey and J Jonah Jameson, is probably the most memorable of all. Lee shows his ability of mixing action, drama, and humor. It is in issue 52 where we see the demise of the star journalist Foswell as he gets killed while trying to save Jameson. And as Foswell walks out, Robertson, the city editor of the Bugle, steps in as a regular black character in this comic-book opera.

Lee keeps weaving webs as Spidey has to meet Doctor Octopus in his own home, and later, readers will see him suffering amnesia for several episodes (53 to 56) and becoming a bad guy temporarily. "The Impossible Escape" (October, 1969) is equally exciting. In this issue Spider-Man has the wind knocked out of him after he fights against the Vulture, and while he lies unconscious on the streets, the common people want to unmask him. Only the intervention of Gwen Stacey's father saves him. Later on in this episode, Stacey and Spidey will share some action together in an exciting adventure.

As Spidey battles other foes repeatedly, his love life gets more entangled with Gwen Stacey. During the last episode it is certain that these two have made up their minds. MJ, in the meanwhile, stays in the background. It seems as if Lee doesn't know what to do with her. In the previous volume she was a mystery girl, then she turned into a bubbly, dynamic woman. But in this volume, she becomes a shallow character. She reminds one of the eighty's song "all she want to do is dance!" Whereas readers can feel Gwen Stacey's feelings, MJ's character has nothing to offer in terms of substance, acting aloof and disengaged with other people's problems. Her change of appearance in the last episode just shows how distant MJ is from the problems affecting Peter Parker, Aunt May, and Osborne. While in the first 2 volumes, Lee worked hard to make MJ into a significant character in PP's life, in this volume it seems that she is running out of steam.

Also, before the last episode we know that Mr. Osborne struggles with his dark side, while the Green Goblin struggles to come out. In addition to this, the King Pin is on the loose again. I don't know why, but the King Pin is the only villain who never gets arrested, making him the most challenging foe.

It seems that at the very end, Spider-Man has made up his mind that he will not give up as a superhero.

With these issues, Lee lends to his creation the literary qualities that make his plot worth following by anyone at any age.
These classic stories have since been reprinted in color where you can actually see the line work without an excess of black ink where it doesn't belong. Included an older Marvel authorized disc that has years of directly scanned books that you can see from the ease of your monitor and follow the whole story line. A classic like this- deserves better treatment than this. Get it if it's your only option to read these stories.
Spidey's story is a great one, and some of the issues in this volume are classics. The B&W Essentials make a great week at the beach read.
Fast delivery, excellent quality and great price. Highly recommend
Superb service! Received item exactly as described.
This edition of third essential Amazing Spider-man book collected Issues 44-65 and Amazing Spider-man Annual #4.

During this era, the book's developed a definite rhythm. There were a few standalone stories, but Lee's comics compromised a lot of multi-party story archs.

The book begins off with a decent battle against the Lizard (#44 and #45), Issues 46 introduced the Shocker and had Peter move out on his own. Issues 47-49 were sensational as Spidey faced Kraven the Hunter, and then the new Vulture. Issue 50 featured one of the most iconic Spider-man covers of all time, "Spider-man No More" as Peter tries but fails to hang up his webs.

The character of the King Pin is also introduced in Issue 50 and he'd been planning on Spider-man retirement. Instead, Spidey battles the Kingpin In Issues 51-52 which also features J Jonah being captured and Spidey having to get him to somehow cooperate.

Spider-man Annual #4 is not as good as #1 or #3, but it's pretty fun as it guest stars the Human Torch. Someone has the idea of doing Spidey-Torch movie, but who are the men behind the curtain? It's not a blockbuster plot, but it's still enjoyable.

Issues 53-56 has an epic battle with Doc Ock. In Issue 55, Spidey loses his memory and Doc Ock convinces him that they're allies and Spidey helps him until figuring out better. At the end of Issue 56, he still doesn't have memory and is wanted by the police for the first time in the series.

Still without his memory in Issue 57, he battles, who is tricked into fighting Spidey by the JJJ. In Issue 58, he regains his memory but has to first face the new and improved Spider-slayer piloted by Jameson.

Issues 59-61 has Spidey battling the Brainwasher (actually another villain by another name) who has taken control of Gwen Stacy's father Captain Stacy. And Peter faces a tough decision at the end of Issue 60 as he has to take a step that could save Stacy's life but will alienate Gwen.

Issue 62 is probably the weakest story in this book. Fantastic Four/Inhumans supporting character Medusa shows up to see if humans were tolerate her people and be open with her. Like Sub-mariner in similar circumstances, she tries to see if they can live in peace by acting like an imperious jerk. The story is really a filler and a bridge to the final serial.

Issues 63-65 find that the old Vulture (presumed dead) is alive and back more dangerous than ever. At the end of Issue 64, Spidey wins the battle but is taken to jail as City Hall debates whether they can remove his mask and a jail break occurs.

---Overall, this may have been my favorite silver age Spidey collection so far. The character grows up, moving out of Aunt May's house into a pad with Harry Osborn in Issue #46. Peter still cares about his Aunt. When a fight with Doctor Octopus leads to another heart attack, Peter moves with righteous fury to contront his foe. On a less dramatic route, Peter shows concern for his Aunt while he's out and when he's with her, he loving teases her in this wonderful charming way. Here, Peter's love for his aunt is charming and natural unlike some later versions.

Captain Stacy is introduced in Issue #56 and lends a great deal of gravitas to the proceedings. He's a fully formed, complex adult figure who counters the cartoonish J Jonah. While the Fantastic Four was adding forgettable characters like Wyatt Wingfoot, Stacy was a true gem.

The stories themselves were rich and full of twists. They were exciting and oftentimes emotionally charged. They were well-developed and well-executed. Several issues also featured foreshadowing of the coming return of the Green Goblin.

The art remained solid throughout. The only thing I didn't like was Mary Jane getting a perm in Issue 65. Ugh! Though perhaps that's just because I'm not a fan of perms. Regardless, this is a must for Spidey fans.
