Spider-Man and --?

The true appeal of the first couple of years of this series was anticipating the wonderful match-ups, catching the first glimpse of their covers, seeing Spider-Man (or sometimes the Human Torch) teamed with another star of the Marvel Universe, both of them in full-throated action-- such as the sight of Spider-Man battling the Werewolf By Night on a bridge in San Fransicso.

The art on MARVEL TEAM-UP was generally quite good, particularly as done by Gil Kane (see his wonderful work with Captain America, Spider-Man and the Gray Gargoyle, one of the best stories in the series). The stars tend to be the more famous characters of the Marvel universe, with Human Torch occasionally sharing the spotlight (as in the case of the classic Human Torch/Iceman dust-up) but there are occasional appearance by some rarely-seen characters such as Brother Voodoo. This is a must-have volume if you are in the mood for a trip down Marvel's memory lane. Where else could one see Spider-Man and the Ghost Rider battle the Orb, a villian whose head is one giant eye...?

The Spectacular SPIDER-MAN #1
Facsimile Edition
by Stan Lee, John Romita, Sr. & Jim Mooney
Plus: Spidey's Origin--
Retold by Stan Lee and Bill Everett
Paperback: 64 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785108327
This is a reprint of the magazine-sized black & white "Spectacular Spider-Man" that Marvel put out in 1968. With story by Stan Lee and art by John Romita (Sr.) and Jim Mooney, this is an election year tale of a slick politician coming out of nowhere to take the lead in the race for mayor of New York City. But the crooked politician is running a major scam, secretly staging attacks on himself as a way of building sympathy and support. But as the web-slinger discovers, the candidate has far more sinister plans than winning an election.
There was a lot of fanfare about this comic when it came out, being the first "second" Spider-Man title, but it only ran for two issues.  The second issue was in color, and featured the Green Goblin. This 2002 reprint also includes an updated Spider-Man origin by (Sub-Mariner's creator and one of the first--1939--Marvel artists) Bill Everett.

Tangled Web
by Garth Ennis, John McCrea, Peter Milligan, Greg Rucka, Duncan Fegredo, & Eduardo Risso, et al
Paperback: 160 pages
Marvel Books
ISBN: 0785108033
The neighborhood isn't so friendly anymore. Spider-Man has been operating in New York City for years; shunned or reviled, he has touched most of its eight million citizens. And each of them has a story.
It's an entirely different way at looking at Spider-Man, the way he operates and the world he lives in. Each story is by a different set of today's top comics creators, starting with "The Thousand," which introduces a new threat to Spider-Man courtesy of Garth Ennis (Punisher, Preacher, Hitman) and John McCrea (Hitman, Jenny Sparks, Hulk Smash!). What's it like to work for the Kingpin? It's answered in "Severance Package" from crime novelist Greg Rucka (Shooting at Midnight, Black Widow) and Edward Risso (100 Bullets). "Flowers for Rhino" is an offbeat look at one of Spider-Man's oldest foes, from Peter Milligan (X-Force, Shade the Changing Man) and Duncan Fegredo (Jay and Silent Bob).
