AMAZING SPIDER-MAN EPIC COLLECTION TP
In 1962, in the pages of a comic book slated for cancellation, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave birth to one of the most enduring icons in American popular culture: the Amazing Spider-Man!

Jonah Jameson; and the debut of classic villains including the Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, the Sandman, the Vulture and Electro!

Schulz's perseverance and passion gave the world Peanuts, the world's most famous comic strip.
