Spider-Man Turns 600!

It's hard to believe that it's been almost 50 years since the publication of Marvel Comics' "Amazing Fantasy" #15. In that single issue writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko debuted a creation that would go on to become one of the most recognizable and popular pop-culture characters in the world, the Amazing Spider-Man.

Since his debut all those years ago Spidey has experienced many milestones and on July 15 sees the debut of the biggest publishing event in the character's history, "Amazing Spider-Man" #600. It's a giant sized 104 page issue featuring all new content by the current creative team and even Spidey's creator Stan Lee!

The issue is sure to be new reader friendly but if you want to catch up on Spider-Man's adventures the library has plenty of great collections to choose from.
