In 2000, Marvel launched the Ultimate Universe, reinventing Spider-Man
for a new millennium. Now, the first three years of Brian Michael Bendis
and Mark Bagley’s fan-favourite, award-winning take on the web-slinger
are collected in one oversized volume! Relive Peter Parker’s early days
as Spider-Man, learning to fight crime by trial and error as he
struggles to balance his new life with the demands of high school:
puberty, homework and dating!
Even with the help of his best
friend and confidante, Mary Jane Watson, Peter has a heavy load to bear.
But the neophyte Spider-Man is making enemies left and right —
including the Green Goblin, the Kingpin of Crime, Dr. Octopus, Kraven
the Hunter and the maniacal Venom — and unless he can rise to the
occasion, he may not survive until prom! Collecting Ultimate Spider-Man (2000) #1-39 and #1/2, written by Brian Michael Bendis, pencilled by
Mark Bagley, with alternate covers by Joe Quesada & Mark Bagley.
