It’s a jam-packed Tales of Suspense monster bonanza! And you know you can’t keep a good monster down. No way, no how, and before they revolutionized the super hero set, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby made monsters their daily diet. Klaag. Oog. Bruttu. Monstrollo. Skyscraper-tall lumbering beasts from outer space; muck-covered monsters from the Savannah swamps; lost world anachronisms from beyond time; and they were all here to teach humanity a lesson, whether we liked it or not. And after Kirby scares you with his creatures from the id, Steve Ditko will tear at your conscience—from the inside out—in tense suspense-thrillers cast with nervous-eyed dreamers and sweaty-palmed schemers, none of whom make it out with getting theirs. Each and every tale is executed by a master of storytelling—by the talents that defined the comic book medium for a generation—and each one is brought to you, gleamingly restored, in the fan-favorite Marvel Masterworks line!

Report for duty! It’s time for another Marvel Masterworks mission with Sgt. Nick Fury and his Howling Commandos! It’s all-out action against the Axis powers, done in the Mighty Marvel Method as Fury and the Howlers protect the Manhattan Project and the atom bomb against Nazi spies and saboteurs; uproot an undercover agent who is none other than Red Skull; confront a traitor in their own ranks; and go mano-a-mano with Baron Strucker in a knock-down, drag-out fight battle in war-torn France. You’ll also see revealed—for the first time—the origin of Nick Fury’s eye-patch, follow Dum Dum Dugan as he goes it alone behind enemy lines, and experience the Allied push when Operation Overlord comes together on D-Day! Illustrated by the fightin’ man’s penciller, Dick Ayers, and scripted by Stan “The Man” and his armed-forces heir apparent, Roy Thomas, it’s an all-out classic.

MARVEL MASTERWORKS: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL. 4 TPB
Written by STAN LEE & STEVE DITKO
Penciled by STEVE DITKO & JOHN ROMITA
Cover by STEVE DITKO & DEAN WHITE
Spinning Spidey’s webs to greater and greater heights, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created an unabashed cultural phenomenon in The Amazing Spider-Man. Their blend of Peter Parker’s everyday woes, mixed with his webslinging alter ego’s super-heroic exploits, was something undeniably special. And after years of perfecting that formula, they unleashed their Spider-Man masterpiece—the Master Planner saga. Spidey roots out the secret hideout of the mastermind that has been terrorizing New York, but he won’t take him down without a challenge. Buried under a mountain of machinery with the clock ticking and Aunt May’s life on the line, Stan and Steve put Spider-Man through the most wrenching experience of his career and define a hero in the process. They’ll also introduce you to Gwen Stacy for the very first time; show you around the campus at E.S.U.; and run the gamut from Kraven the Hunter to “Just a Guy Named Joe” before a new talent joins the Spider-Man family. The Jazzy One, John Romita, makes his Spider-Man debut! And oh, what a debut it is! His identity uncovered by the Green Goblin, Spidey finds himself fighting for his life only to discover the Goblin is none other than Norman Osborn. To top it off you’ll get the Green Goblin’s origin in an edge-of-your-seat Marvel classic, and, as an amazing never-before-seen bonus, the complete pencils to Amazing Spider-Man #31! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #31-40.
