Catches thieves just like flies

Spider-Man is, without a single doubt, one of the biggest superheroes in the history of comics. That’s pretty easy to say given his staying power. From Spidey’s debut right through the present age, he’s maintained his status as one of Marvel Comics’ premier stars.

Now publisher Insight Editions has a book planned to spotlight the art that’s told the story of Peter Parker’s life. And it looks like it’ll be hitting all the high notes that have played out across the decades. You’ll find a little bit of everything in this one. The book will run the gamut, including classic tales like the Venom saga up to Miles Morales and Ghost Spider.

Here’s the official rundown:

Since he first appeared in the pages of Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962, Marvel’s number one web-slinger has been swinging into the hearts of super hero fans everywhere. Originally portrayed as the chronic underdog, Spider-Man has grown from amazing to spectacular to ultimate and beyond, dominating the comics sphere and consistently ranking among the most popular super heroes of all time.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: From Amazing to Spectacular celebrates the incredibly rich and expansive history of this iconic character in a brand new and unparalleled way—showcasing the jaw-dropping art of the Spider-Man comics and diving deep into the remarkable stories that have shaped Spider-Man into the super hero he is today. The book features art from Spider-Man’s great artists, including Steve Ditko, John Romita Sr. and Jr., Mark Bagley, Sara Pichelli and more—accompanied by exclusive commentary from leading comic book creators like Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Millar, Alex Ross, Dan Slott, J. Michael Straczynski, and many more.

This compendium truly captures the great power and great responsibility of developing one of the most monumental heroes in comics history.
