50 years of The Amazing Spider-man

This month (August 1962) marks the 50th Anniversary of the Amazing Spider-man!
The Web-headed Wonder made his first appearance in the final issue of "Amazing Fantasy" (#15). He proved to be so popular that by the beginning of 1963 he was given his own title and went on to be Marvel Comics' biggest Star.
Spidey would help usher in the Marvel Age of Comics that would change the way comic book super-hero stories were told and drawn.
Spider-man is my favorite super-hero and I know life would be a whole lot duller if I didn't have his adventures to read.
