Celebrate Spider-Man’s 60th Anniversary With ‘Spider-Man: Panel by Panel’
The birthday of the greatest creation in comic book history, Marvel fans can celebrate Spider-Man’s 60th Anniversary with the newly released Spider-Man: Panel By Panel.
There is no character in the history of the medium that has had the level of impact that Spider-Man has had; being a mainstay of the comic book industry for his entire 60 years of existence.
The Stan Lee creation defined the direction and focus of Marvel comics, and established the young hero, as well as becoming one of the most well-known and beloved characters in the history of the industry.
With the character in the midst of celebrating his 60th anniversary, Abrams Books and Marvel have announced a brand new collaborative effort in the form of Spider-Man: Panel by Panel.
Announced by Marvel.com, the collection is a must-have for Spider-Man and Marvel fans, and is set to arrive on October 18th, 2022 with pre-orders available now.
The official announcement states, “Spider-Man: Panel by Panel includes two complete stories plus the original art form the Library of Congress”
The iconic character first arrived in August of 1962 in his debut issue, Amazing Fantasy #15, by the brilliant mind of Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby; an iconic debut that was preceded by The Amazing Spider-Man #1 in March of 1963.
The Spider-Man: Panel by Panel collection is from the mind of the award-winning graphic designer Chip Kidd, who Marvel states, “Reimagines the iconic first stories using original vintage copies of both comic books to present these classic tales in a whole new way.”
The book contains text from Chip Kidd, editor at Marvel Tom Brevoort, historian Mark Evanier, and Library of Congress curator Sara Duke, and is the perfect addition to the collection of any Marvel or Spider-MAn fan.
With a robust history that has evolved and grown throughout the character’s 60 years of existence, this look back to the character’s first origin holds tremendous weight and importance to the legacy of not only the character but the entire comic book industry.
