Chapters titled “Friendly,” “Amazing,” and “Spectacular” dissect the life of Peter Parker from his 1962 teenage bookworm roots through the transition to Spider-Man and to bona fide Avenger-class superhero. Parker has also been cloned as the Scarlet Spider, lost and found numerous loves, and led off Marvel’s “Ultimate” series in the 2000s. Bright colors, eye-popping page spreads, and knowledgeable commentary from long-time comics trade expert Johnson (co-editor, COVID Chronicles: A Comics Anthology) detail story arcs, romantic entanglements, prominent foes, and all other things Spidey.
VERDICT A necessary addition to library pop culture collections.
