Published in 2006 by Benbella Books, this is a 232 page trade paperback based on the popular Marvel Comics super-hero The Amazing Spider-Man. From humble comic beginnings to blockbuster feature films, Peter Parker and his alter ego Spider-Man have fascinated fans for decades. Whether catching thieves like flies, quipping at villains from Doc Ock to the Green Goblin, and struggling with his guilt over Uncle Ben s death, on the big screen or on the page, his appeal is undeniable. Webslinger explores what makes Spider-Man worthy of his wild popularity, drawing from both 40-plus years of comics and the first two feature films to gain insights into Peter Parker s psyche. With wit, intelligence, and an uncanny spider-sense, Webslinger s essayists show us just what it is about the Amazing Spider-Man that makes his struggles resonate so deeply with so many.
