    Marvelous Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby art makes this a real treat for the eyes, the stories are pretty much what you would expect from this period, but if your an old codger like me you might just remember them from the first time round Classic stuff, well worth a look

    I love the work Steve Ditko did in late 50s and early 60s for Marvel s anthology comics Amazing Fantasy, Journey into Mystery, Strange Tales, Tales of Suspense, Tales to Astonish and some of their lesser known titles.This volume collects all 15 issues of the comic book mostly known as Amazing Fantasy although only the last issue was actually called that Amazing Fantasy started out as Amazing Adventures issues 1 6 and was just like Marvel s other anthology titles the stories drawn by vario I love the work Steve Ditko did in late 50s and early 60s for Marvel s anthology comics Amazing Fantasy, Journey into Mystery, Strange Tales, Tales of Suspense, Tales to Astonish and some of their lesser known titles.This volume collects all 15 issues of the comic book mostly known as Amazing Fantasy although only the last issue was actually called that Amazing Fantasy started out as Amazing Adventures issues 1 6 and was just like Marvel s other anthology titles the stories drawn by various artists including Ditko and Jack Kirby But with issue 7, the title became Amazing Adult Fantasy with all the stories illustrated by Ditko.I enjoyed the Marvel Masterworks reprints of the early non superhero stories from Tales to Astonish and Tales of Suspense, and I m looking forward to the later volumes of Journey into Mystery and Strange Tales where I hope to get a bitDitko But for sheer volume of Ditko this volume can t be beat Each Masterworks volume has 9 to 11 issues usually with nothan 9 to 11 stories drawn by Ditko But this volume contains nine issues of nothing but Ditko plus his stories in first six issues The only thing better would be a hardback series that collected all of his non superhero Marvel work from that period

    What is interesting about this collection is how disappointed you are when the fifteenth and final issue introduces Spider Man Issues 7 14 when the book was titled Amazing Adult Fantasy suggest an intriguing place comics might have gone had their creators not been interested in making a living Admittedly, one can sense Lee s well of inspiration running dry toward the end of that run and the transition to superheroic uniformity seems damnably inevitable, hindsight or no.

    The book best known for spawning Spider Man this ios a collection of mostly monster stories, and none of them are all that great Ditkos art waffles between rushed and crappy to brilliant, and Lee never does seem comfortable in the writing dept You d be much better off reading the EC line of Weird Science Weird Fantasy.

    Raccoglie l intera serie mensile coi suoi cambiamenti, di nome e struttura.Certo sono storielle ingenue, che dopo un poco si ripetono C un certo moralismo di fondo, specie in quelle di Steve Ditko Per una gran lettura, piena di fantasia e di idee.
