Reading Spider-Man: The Amazing Spider-Man 1



Title: The Amazing Spider-Man
Issue Number: 1
Release Date: March 1963

Highlights
  • Spider-Man returns in his own monthly series after six months of fans waiting and writing to Marvel headquarters
  • First appearance of J. Jonah Jameson
  • First appearance of Chameleon
  • Spider-Man meets all four members of the Fantastic Four
Low Points
  • Peter Parker's main drive seems be nothing more than to make money, granted he wants to get it to help Aunt May, but still a very bland launching point
  • Peter is arrogant, especially when first meeting the Fantastic Four
Oddities
  • Chameleon's disguises come from various pockets on a vest he wears - an outfit for every occasion?
  • Second story in the book keeps referring to Peter as, Peter "Palmer", not Parker
