40 Years of the Amazing Spider-Man

Topics Entertainment, the people who put together the Marvel Comic Book Library CD-ROM have a new CD-ROM collecting Amazing Spider-Man.

This is a complete collection of every Amazing Spider-Man comic book (excluding the Annuals) ever printed, covering more than 40 years... from March 1963 to December 2003... and also including Amazing Fantasy #15 - Spider-Man's debut issue. That's a total of 501 (Amazing Spider-Man #s 1 thru 500, and Amazing Fantasy #15) complete full-color comic books - more than 16,000 pages of classic comic art! - featuring Marvel's flagship character, the first solo "super-hero with super-problems" who forever changed comic books! Included on these 11 CD-ROMs are all four covers of every issue, all the articles, the "Spider's-Web" columns, the "Bullpen Bulletins," Stan "The Man" Lee's Soapboxes, and every vintage advertisement... cover-to-cover complete just as they were originally published! Featuring classic art by the best-known Spider-Man artists, Steve Ditko and John Romita, Sr., these digital images were scanned from the original historic paper comic books (compliments of Marvel editor and collector Mr. Ralph Macchio), and so some images may be a bit soiled, or may contain slight discolorations or small degrading of pages such as small tears, creases or light pen marks. But that's what gives this product its historical value and character.

Still available is the Marvel Comic Book Library CD-ROM! The first 10 adventures of 10 classic Marvel characters on one CD-ROM. 100 complete comic books with character bios, movie screen savers (PC only) and 3 bonus comics. Includes Spider-Man (1962) #1-9, 15; Avengers (1963) #1-10; Captain America (1964) #59-68; Daredevil (1964) #1-10; Fantastic Four (1961) #1-10; Hulk (1962) #1-6, 60-63; Tales of Suspense (1963) #39-48; Silver Surfer (1966) #1-10; Sub-Mariner (1962) #70-79; and X-Men (1975) #1, 94-102.
