Today's selection is not the title you turn to when you're looking for an innovative exploration of the medium's potentrial or a fresh insight into the human condition. But if you're craving good old-fashioned super-hero action, you can't go wrong with
#8. Giant-Size Spider-Man #1-6
Why? Well, there's Ross Andru, who pencils the first five issues (#6 is a reprint of Amazing Spider-Man Special #4). I love his Spidey to begin with and Andru really pulls out the stops here. The writing's not bad either, with great stories from Len Wein in #1-2 and a trio of tales (one good, one very good, one "meh") from then-current Amazing scripter Gerry Conway. But ultimately it's the co-stars selected that make this book--which really ought to be called Giant-Size Marvel Team-Up--so memorable: Dracula (it shouldn't work but damned if it doesn't), Master of Kung Fu, Doc Savage, The Punisher and Man-Thing.
#2, featuring Spidey and Shang-Chi manipulated by Fu Manchu into fighting each other, is the highlight of the series but the clever Savage story in #3 (in which the heroes battle the same menace 40 years apart and thus never actually meet) and the introduction of the corrupt Deterrence Research Corporation and its bat-shit crazy president Moses Magnum in #4 are also top-notch.
Oh hell, they're all good!
I summon the big fun!
