The Origin Story (Introducing Stan Lee, Steve Ditko and Spider-Man)
In this podcast, we will discuss all 41 of the original Spider-Man comics done by the original creative team of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko! But before we do, we wanted to give a background on both the character and us! So we talk about the history behind the creation of Spider-Man, and what he came to mean to the world of comics and beyond.
Spidey Debuts! (Amazing Fantasy #15)
Amazing Adult Fantasy was an anthology comics series that featured stand-alone sci-fi and fantasy stories. They were short, dark, weird and often had twist endings. Think Twilight Zone, but five page comics stories. But this issue -- the series' last issue -- broke from its pattern in a few important ways. One, it changed its title to just "Amazing Fantasy." And two, it introduced Spider-Man.
The Fantastic Four / The Chameleon (ASM #1)
For his second appearance, Spider-Man gets his own comic that contains two -- really THREE -- stories! He meets J. Jonah Jameson, the perpetually angry newspaper publisher who uses his media empire to paint Spider-Man as a MENACE! He meets the FF, who reject him as a member, for many reasons including that he basically breaks in to their headquarters and tries to show off! He meets the Chameleon, one of the dumbest villains in all comicdom!
