The iconic superhero’s 1980s-era newspaper strip is the one major part of his adventures that has not been reprinted. Now saved from the dustbins of ephemera for all of the Wall Crawler’s fans in this deluxe hardcover series.

The woebegone web-slinger encounters problems that make Dar Harat seem like a sewing circle—if he can escape from their clutches, that is! Daily Bugle writer Jenny Sue Saxon arrives and falls for Peter Parker while trying to become Spider-Man’s biographer, even as Aunt May faces financial ruin in a very modern kind of bank heist. Mary Jane returns just in time to learn an important secret—and to introduce Peter to her Uncle Spencer Watson (what, no Aunt Anna?). Spidey’s reputation is under fire when he’s accused of pushing drugs. It’s not for the squeamish! And in a story that rivals the classic “drug issues” of Spider-Man’s comic book, Stan Lee addresses one of the most heart-rending problems of modern times: child abuse.

Series Overview: Book 5 in an ongoing series.

Continuing a first-ever chronological collection of the Spider-Man newspaper comics.

Stan Lee (born Stanley Martin Lieber, December 28, 1922) is an American comic-book writer, editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor, and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. In collaboration with several artists, including Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he created Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, Thor, the X-Men, and many other fictional characters, introducing a thoroughly shared universe into superhero comic books. In addition, he headed the first major successful challenge to the industry’s censorship organization, the Comics Code Authority, and forced it to reform its policies. Lee subsequently led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.

He was inducted into the comic book industry’s Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995. Lee received a National Medal of Arts in 2008.
