Following relatively hot on the heels of the Marvel and DC Vaults comes this excellent history of Spider-Man, complete with interactive elements — your own Spidey mask! — and nostalgia triggers, including posters, baseball cards and more. Neatly written by legendary comic scribe Peter David, it’s a charming and in-depth trawl through Spider-Man’s storied career that throws up all sorts of amazing, spectacular, sensational titbits. The issue where Spidey says no to drugs is a keeper.
