Spider-Man Poster Book (2007)

Background

If a picture paints a thousand words, then this is 36,000 words worth of art here in this book.

Story Details

Magazine size, 18 centrefold posters, all double sized. That gives 36 posters of which you can use 18 at any one time. There's a mix from classic Spidey covers (e.g. ASM #12, ASM #50, ASM #122) and them more recent art mostly from the last four or five years - Spidey/Black Cat, various recent Amazing covers, even some of the Back In Black covers.

Sadly, I'm too old to tear this book apart and stick the posters up in my bedroom. I haven't even asked, I just know my wife won't approve. Unfortunately, you can't see the posters in full glory without pulling the staples apart. But I'm quite sure that if you're looking to repaper your room, 18 posters for US$6 seems a good deal by my book!

You're just going to have fun figuring out which side of each of these posters is your favorite. Or maybe you can flip them over once a week.

General Comments

The artists are credited, but the actual issues aren't quoted. I could probably name most of them given a bit of time flicking through the SpiderFan comics database, but it would have been a nice touch to have give that info in this book along with the credits.

Overall Rating

Great art, nice price. Three and a half webs.
