Also, from the same author is...
Let me just get the rope.
Marvel has been doing a Mighty Marvel Masterworks GN-TPB line.
I really like Spider-man, but mostly stuff before the Clone Saga (1996). One good thing about those older stories is they are a lot shorter/more self contained, so you don't really have to read them in a particular order.
If you can find any collections of Spider-man by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, those are the original stories from the 1960s. A lot of those collections are expensive if you look for them used, but it looks like they are releasing a cheap collection with the first 10 issues in June
Don't be afraid to buy actual comics rather than collected editions... use the marvel fan wiki to look for issues you might like, then buy them on ebay, mycomicshop, or your local comic book store.
My favorite run of Spider-man is Spectacular Spider-man 178-200 by Buscema and DeMatteis. Another good run is Amazing Spider-man 200 and the 10 or so issues leading up to it, it was reprinted in "Spider-man vs the Burglar" which is unfortunately very expensive right now.
The Epic Collections are a great format, but it seems like they go out of print quick and then get pricey. Goblin's Last Stand would be a good one to start with that is still in print, has pretty much THE classic Spider-man story in it.
tl;dr I would get Goblin's Last Stand, then the Masterwork edition I linked to above when it comes out.
My cousin's 8-year-old son was reading a graphic novel by Dan Pilkey called Dog Man the last time they visited. I read through it and was impressed because it was written and drawn as if a 4th grader had made it, and it had some how-to-draw materials in the back. It's basically a "You can make a story like this, too!" kind of book. Here's a link to the Amazon listing: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0545581605/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Y.RNzb3DS1BVY
^^^^^^^^jk, ^^^^^^^^you ^^^^^^^^can ^^^^^^^^buy ^^^^^^^^it ^^^^^^^^on ^^^^^^^^Amazon.
Hellblazer? No, that's squarely a comic for adults.
But there is a kids comic starring John Constantine (the main character of Hellblazer). Your kid might be interested in that
Shouldn’t be, they just put out a new printing of it this year!
You can also go for the Mighty Marvel Masterworks if you want. Plus I have to say the paper quality is actually pretty good compared to most of their other editions. Plus I think the Cho covers are really good:
Marvel has been reprinting Marvel Masterworks, but the first Spider-Man one, it’s cheap and it’s and very first couple issues of Spider-Man ever.
Mighty Marvel Masterworks: The Amazing Spider-Man vol. 1
Reprints the first 10 issues from 1962-1963. It's Manga-sized dimensions. This is Marvel's new Masterworks for Kids line, basically. They're cheap, they're built for kids, this may be a good bet.
DC has absolutely fucking wrecked Constantine. They've removed all his sharp edges, everything that defined that character. It's honestly beyond parody at this point.
The early issues by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko are great. This edition that comes out next month not only has his origin story but introduces Dr. Octopus, Vulture, Sandman, Lizard, and Electro.
I just bought this one right here. It'll be here available in stock on Sept 18th. I can't wait
I saw a meme that said, "when a tree gets cut down and into a book, it gets a new, and good afterlife"
&gt;shows stinky steve and this
Not sure if videos are allowed , but this one is decent and the book is very well made i think. If someone is interested here is amazon link
In that case, you should grab the trade collections of the Superman Adventures comic (based on the '90s animated series). It's actually one of the best Superman comics I've read.
Marc Tyler Nobleman - author of "Bill the Boy Wonder" http://www.amazon.com/Bill-Boy-Wonder-Secret-Co-Creator/dp/1580892892/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
has done an admirable job of highlighting the factual verifiable evidence of what Bill Finger contributed to Batman.
But nowhere does he say that Bob Kane contributed nothing to Batman, that seems an odd claim to make.
For anyone interested, have a listen to "Fatman on Batman #53: Marc Tyler Nobleman"
In the episode, Marc goes through point by point, the evidence of what Finger contributed to Batman, and what Bob Kane contributed to Batman.
