For four decades, Spider-Man has enthralled fans of his comic books and television show. Now, step inside the story behind the superheroes growing empire, which is as fascinating as any of his adventures. Entertainment writer Edward Gross tells all in this first unauthorized history of the Spider-Man (a.k.a. webslinger), his creator, and the movie that will catapult him into the public eye. Gross shows how Stan Lees frustration as a comic book artist spawned the creation of a revolutionary comic book hero as he follows Spider-Mans popularity through the 60s and 70s. He provides Spider-Mans fans with a riveting biography of the superhero, a rogues gallery of archenemies, and a behind-the-scenes episode guide to all five television series. Spider-Man is back and this fact-filled, fully illustrated book will become the perfect resource for his millions of fans.They knew that they would have to make the film quickly and that there wasna#39;t a lot of money. ... a pair of low-budget, effective, effects-driven horror movies which were produced on far lower budgets than even this lower-tier version of the web- slinger. ... And, of course, write something that would be realistic to that approach.
