Here are two more technical mid-grade (but still w/bright colors and nearly white interiors) Spideys that got me started. I had previously purchased these from a dealer - Ed Robertson out of Arizona - who had the integrity to see the few flaws (e.g., notice the right side staining on the ASM 19 and the bottom edge center damage on the ASM 17) to grade/price these books fairly.

I've enjoyed them both a bunch.

.....17 - 19 is such a rich storyline. The cover of # 19 is quintessential SA. I did a friend a favor a while back and bought some books from him to help him out. ASM 7 was one of them.....and it reignited my ASM passion.....ASM 7 is one of my favorite early marvels...don't really know why, it's not profound but it sure was, and is, a fun read. What started as a favor has turned into a stack of 12 different Ditko gems. I'm going to try and get the first appearance of all of Ditko's ASM villains. As of now, I lack 1, 2, 20, and 28. I'm looking for 4.5 to 6.0 copies that present well in a mylar.....stuff I can take out and look at often. I won't have a 1 for a very long while....as it's pricey.....but what fun. I had forgotten how much I love Spidey. GOD BLESS...

Great book Tom. Tough book to find with this kind of eye appeal, maybe second in difficulty to only the 11.

What about the circus bunch in 16 and 22? The Beetle was in ASM 21, he was a big villain for somebody else later on. Where did he come from?
